Parsec, the high-performance, peer-to-peer, remote streaming technology developer, and leading game creator and publisher Ubisoft are announcing a strategic deal that will allow Ubisoft to power new gaming experiences in its products and services. Ubisoft will leverage Parsec’s pioneering technology to advance its game streaming efforts, using Parsec to power in-game experiences, demonstrations, events, and other endeavors.
“We fine-tune Parsec’s technology to provide as close to a perfect game streaming experience as possible,” said Parsec co-founder and CTO Chris Dickson, “Ubisoft is the creative force behind some of the most innovative, technically groundbreaking experiences in games, and we cannot wait to see what their team achieves with our platform.”
Earlier in July, Ubisoft partnered with Parsec to power remote game demonstrations of Watch Dogs: Legion and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla as part of its online showcase, Ubisoft Forward. Over the course of the multi-day event, more than 1,000 game industry and media professionals had the opportunity to seamlessly play these groundbreaking titles from anywhere in the world. This strategic deal will allow Ubisoft to build upon the success of Ubisoft Forward, and create new, inventive streaming experiences using Parsec’s technology.
“We are delighted to complete this deal with Parsec,” said Stéphanie Perotti, VP Online Services, Ubisoft, “the streaming technology they have developed provides the players a new way to discover video games while providing an optimal quality of experience. With this deal, we are strengthening our streaming capabilities for our internal and player facing platforms.”
Parsec’s low-latency, high frame rate, UHD visual fidelity is uniquely equipped to meet the demands of both players and game developers. Since launching Parsec for Teams in March, Parsec has partnered with leading game developers, publishers, conferences, tournaments, and expositions to power remote game experiences. The strategic deal goes a step further by allowing Ubisoft to make full use of Parsec’s underlying technology. It enters into effect immediately.
