Google Cloud announced an extended partnership with Improbable, the multiplayer game specialists and creators of SpatialOS, the unique cloud-based platform for the development and management of any kind of online multiplayer game.

Building on an existing strategic relationship, this extended partnership will see Improbable and Google Cloud work together to improve solutions and reduce cost and risk for multiplayer game developers. The partners will also work together to help Google Cloud customers making multiplayer games explore how SpatialOS can reduce their risk and speed up gameplay iteration, testing, and improvement, even for challenging and innovative game designs.

Since announcing its first partnership with Google Cloud in 2016, Improbable has grown from around 100 employees to more than 500 and raised more than $550m in funding. In 2019 Improbable announced the opening of Improbable Game Studios, with three wholly-owned game studios based in the UK, the US, and Canada working on games using SpatialOS.

Developers using SpatialOS build games using their preferred combination of both Improbable and third-party tools and engines. These games are then run on the cloud, using SpatialOS’ hosting, online services, and multiserver networking layer.

This enables developers to reduce their project’s risk by iterating on gameplay faster, designing and experimenting more flexibly, and launching with a managed solution for online games.

SpatialOS leverages the effectively limitless computational power of the cloud by allowing game worlds and gameplay systems to be seamlessly distributed across multiple cores and servers. Using this multiserver architecture, developers can rapidly build, test, debug, launch, redesign and scale multiplayer games – from action-packed, session-based Battle Royale experiences to huge, experimental virtual worlds, shared by thousands of players at once.
