The business partnership is a significant win for Multiplay, a wholly owned subsidiary of GAME Digital, which impressed Respawn with both their deep understanding of game server hosting plus their auto-scaling hybrid-cloud technology. The Multiplay Game Services platform is integrated with a global network of dedicated server providers as well as major Cloud providers such as Google Compute Platform, Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services.
This flexible platform will enable Titanfall 2 to utilise a far-reaching array of hosting technologies across the globe. Players will be well served with a powerful base-layer of dedicated servers, minimal latency and maximum capacity through Multiplay’s cloud-bursting tech.
“The Titanfall 2 launch is going to be bigger and better than the last game and what’s really important to me is that the game just works,” said Jon Shiring, lead programmer at Respawn Entertainment. “We wanted to make sure we had an insane amount of scalability and reliability, so we partnered with Multiplay because they have a great deal of expertise in game server hosting and a very clever auto-scaling product that can abstract away different cloud environments that lets us focus on making games.”
“We have been working closely with Multiplay to ensure we utilize multiple clouds as well as bare metal servers in every region our game will be on sale. Giving us more flexibility, more local data centers, endless scalability, and the highest reliability will result in the best service we can offer to millions of players.”
Multiplay Digital Services will deploy multiple Cloud providers and Bare Metal Server data centre locations in each region, designed to protect gamers from gameplay interruptions and to get them back online within minutes if an outage were to occur.
Titanfall 2 is a highly-anticipated first person shooter and is set to build on the foundation Respawn established with the first Titanfall – fast, fluid, and fun gameplay between pilots and titans, to once again innovate and elevate the shooter genre.
Players will be able to experience Multiplay Digital Services’ revolutionary multi-cloud platform when Titanfall 2 releases on October 28th this year.
