Kingdom Hearts 3: Character Modeling And Texturing Possibly Outsourced To India

Square Enix following the Ubisoft playbook of game design.

Game development is no longer confined to just countries like the US, Japan, or the UK like it used to be- it is now global, and even a single game is simultaneously developed in multiple parts of the world in a modular process, before it is all brought together right before release.

This will also hold true for Square Enix’s upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3, it appears- according to the LinkedIn profile of a graphics designer at the Indian firm Laksyha Digital, the development of characters in Kingdom Hearts 3 has been outsourced to studios in India (incidentally, if the LinkedIn profile has been edited to remove references to Kingdom Hearts 3, you can check out a screencap of it below the post).

This should also be good news to the burgeoning, but ultimately disappointingly small game development community in India- if major AAA publishers are trusting Indian studios with development on their big games, maybe it won’t be too long before Indian game development is a thing.

Kingdom Hearts 3 will launch… well, sometime, we don’t quite know when, actually- on Xbox One and PS4. Stay tuned for more coverage.
