With Scaler, Ubisoft has introduced a new cloud technology that will be used in various games in the future. Some phrases also refer to the plans of the Metaverse.
Ubisoft took care of that today announcement by Ubisoft Scalar. This is a cloud-based game development technology intended to be interwoven with the publisher’s game engines. This may reduce “player hardware dependence”.

The goal is to create a new structure for game development focused on enabling “perfect game designs and experiences”.
According to the French publisher, games using Ubisoft Scaler “can use virtually unlimited computing power to overcome previous limitations in all aspects.” In this context, Ubisoft promises “massive virtual worlds that deliver ultra-realistic environments and simulations”. This approach brings back memories of “Crackdown 3”,
Ubisoft’s foray into metaverses?
Ubisoft caught itself a few months ago with an NFT push. In this regard, the company announced in December quartz in A platform through which to manage Ubisoft’s NFTs. Players’ reactions were rather negative, but other publishers and developers soon followed suit.
NFTs are said to be primarily used in the Metaverse plans of the big tech giants. But Ubisoft Scaler also appears to be heading in that direction. In the context of today’s press release, the publisher spoke of the fact that thanks to “common platforms and scalable systems, millions of people can gather in one common virtual environment” to “play new types of games and create a giant shared gaming experience.”
This sounds a bit like the Metaverse, even if Ubisoft avoids that term.
