Square Enix has shared in an interesting interview his interest in launching his extensive catalog of video games, fruit of years of development in the industry, in digital format. For this, I have been studying several ways, including a new subscription service or even betting on streaming.
“We are working on it,” Yosuke Matsuda, CEO of the company, told the magazine. Gameinformer ” They ask us often. Most of our main adventures can now be played in different ways. As for the most classic works, which could be played at NES, we are working hard so that they can be played. We have currently launched a project internally to port and take them to a large number of platforms, “I have added.
” We would like to see them in a subscription or streaming service, and we are even at the possibility of doing it ourselves, “the executive commented, thus leaving open the possibility of a new on-demand gaming platform. Matsuda recalls in his interview that practically all companies in the sector are considering these options and that they, likewise, want to take advantage of their catalog, but that currently they have nothing decided.
On the other hand, the CEO of the Japanese giant I have said that some of his classic releases, from the first days of Square, are not available for the simple reason of having lost the video game code. ” I’m ashamed to admit it “, I’ve acknowledged.
During this E3 2019 we’ve had several related announcements. On the one hand Ubisoft presented Uplay + for PC and Stadia, while on the other hand, and on a purely technological level, Bethesda announced Orion to please the game by streaming.
