Set to be released this coming fall, Titanfall 2 will no longer be platform-exclusive on consoles, being released this time around on PC, Xbox One and the PlayStation 4 at the same time. Respawn Entertainment have partnered with multi-Cloud platform Multiplay to host the servers. Multiplay Director of Digital Business Paul Manuel had this to say: “Titanfall 2 is a significant win for our enterprise hosting division, and we are delighted to be working with the talented team at Respawn. We share their passion for innovation and our team at Multiplay are constantly pushing the boundaries of what can be achieved within game server hosting. Our platform combines high-power dedicated servers across the globe with the additional capability of automatically bursting into the leading cloud providers. This provides un-paralleled flexibility and fault tolerance that’s simply not achievable through a single Cloud provider.”
Respawn Entertainment’s Lead Programmer Jon Shiring chimed in with “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. 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 datacenters, endless scalability, and the highest reliability will result in the best service we can offer to millions of players.”
Multiplay Digital Services are set to deploy multiple Cloud providers and Bare Metal Server data centre locations in each geographic region, with the purpose of protecting gamers from gameplay interruptions and to get them back online within minutes if an outage were to occur. Multiplay was founded in 1997 and specializes in online hosting, event management and esports. For more information visit them at their website.
