Those with the better understanding of next gen tech will be the ones to win.
Insomniac Games CEO Ted Price offered his own two cents to developers for next generation titles. Rather than marketing or innovations, it will be efficiency that will hold the key to next gen console development.
Speaking to VG247, he said, “I think that what we all face in this industry – for those of us in the console business – is the need to get progressively more efficient in terms of how we build our assets and get them into the game.
“Because that’s going to get more and more complex. The bar continues to get raised in terms of visuals, so to keep development costs reasonable you have to have better and better tools, which means a constant focus on efficiency in your pipeline.
This makes sense – after all, games have progressively improved as we’ve gone further into a respective technology’s generation.
“The more efficiently you create assets for your game and the more quickly you can iterate on gameplay, the better the final product’s going to be no matter what platform it is.”
