Sega and Microsoft work together to create “super games”


Metaverses are so hot right now and it looks like Sega is taking the steps to create her own. Maybe you know the concept of “Metaverse” from Fortnite, Space Jam or Ready player one – It’s basically a hub where you can find all of your favorite brands and fictional characters in one place.

Unsurprisingly, they do the same with Sega’s stable characters, combining recognizable names like Sonic the Hedgehog, Super Monkey Ball, and Persona into a “super game”.

The company announced today that it will partner with Microsoft to create these super games using Microsoft’s “modern” Azure cloud technology. According to Sega’s own press release on the deal, the company will be guided by the main keywords “global”, “online”, “community” and “IP usage”.

“By building mutual collaboration in areas such as SEGA’s game development capabilities and building state-of-the-art technology and development environments from Microsoft, we will continue to promote game development that game fans around the world can enjoy.”

– Yukio Sugino, President and COO of SEGA

Sega isn’t the first company to use Microsoft’s cloud technology – two years ago, Sony also signed a deal with them and forged a new friendship between their former / current gaming rivals. In fact, Sega also used Microsoft Azure to launch Phantasy Star Online 2 in North America.

One of Sega’s super fixtures is putting together her most popular series, such as Total war, Football Manager and Sonic, as well as potentially “dormant” classics like Crazy Taxi and Virtua Fighter. They also hope to “optimize” their businesses to become more profitable, including mobile games and “entertainment machines,” something Konami introduced a few years ago.

What do you hope for from Sega’s SUPER GAMES? Would you actually like to see Sonic hanging out with the Total War military generals? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
