ONTARIO, CANADA — Video game outsourcing provider DigitalShock announced a 25% reduction in production costs through the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies.

This breakthrough is detailed in their latest business intelligence report, which sheds light on the transformative effects of AI and other technologies in the video game and animation industries.

Innovative AI applications streamline production

The report revealed that 57% of video game outsourcing providers are now utilizing AI to cut costs for clients, with some applications shortening production times by up to 50%. 

DigitalShock, known for its work on major titles like Disneyland Adventures and Forza, used AI to enhance various creative workflows, including procedural content generation and complex character animations.

This adoption of AI allows for more efficient concept art creation, 3D art, game design, and engineering processes.

Enhanced realities and cloud gaming

DigitalShock’s report also highlighted the impact of Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). These technologies are revolutionizing player interactions, offering deeper engagement levels. 

Additionally, cloud gaming is explored for its potential to democratize gaming by providing high-quality experiences across various devices without the need for expensive hardware.

Economic and workplace transformations

From an economic perspective, AI and cloud technologies are praised for their ability to reduce production costs and speed up development cycles significantly. 

The report also touched on the evolving workplace dynamics, noting a shift towards more remote and hybrid models, which DigitalShock has adopted for over a decade.

Future prospects and industry growth

Looking ahead, the report is optimistic about the industry’s continued growth, driven by technological advancements and increasing consumer demand for innovative gaming experiences.
