The mainframe cloud game, which is supposedly under development, is said to have the working title Pax Dei.
The Finnish developer studio Mainframe is said to be working on a native cloud game for Microsoft. We reported about it on Monday.
Jeff Grubb has now confirmed the rumor about the possible MMO online adventure through his own sources.
Grubb adds further interesting information to the rumor. The game will therefore be developed under the working title Pax Dei.
The Xbox team is enthusiastic about the project in several ways. For example, in a native cloud game, you would have access to the same game from any device. The developer should also experiment with game mechanics that only work via a remote server.
The things you can do in the game should scale with the device you’re playing on or increase in complexity. As Grubb writes, you could do simple things like farm raw materials just fine on your mobile phone while you work. More complex things like missions or battles could then be played better at home on the PC or console.
Microsoft itself hopes to learn something from the development of a cloud-based game. You want to pass this on to other studios later, who can then work according to the best possible method or specification when they develop such games.
This should also include a possible Xbox project by Hideo Kojima. Allegedly Kojima and Microsoft still have to come to an agreement, but Xbox is said to have already made resources available. Kim Swift, for example, who oversees cloud games at Microsoft, is said to support Kojima.
