Codemasters Signs Multi-Title Deal with Exit Games: Exit Games Photon Chosen to Power Upcoming Massive Multiplayer Online Titles
Portland, OR â€“ September 22Â nd, 2011 â€“ Exit Games today announced that its leading network engine Photon has been selected in a multi-title agreement by Codemasters to power the developer and publishersâ€™ browser-based multiplayer online games, including the forthcoming F1 ONLINE The Gameâ„˘.
Codemasters will utilize Photon as its core network technology for multiple upcoming online games. The choice by this respected games publisher and triple-A game development studio once more proves that Photon is the leading network engine and socket server for large scale online game projects.
Photon is the marketâ€™s only commercial socket server and network engine featuring reliable UDP (RUDP), a C/C++-based core for ultimate performance and a server that is extensible in C#. These features make Photon an ideal and unique complement for the development of MMOGs or first person shooters.
Bryan Black, Technical Director Online states: â€śWe chose Photon for three reasons: first it provides us with proven, rock-solid and scalable technology. Second: we were really impressed by their team. We told them what we needed and they put together a fantastic demo which gave us a lot of confidence. That was really convincing. However, in the end, the price tag must fit as well, so the final reason was their competitive pricing.â€ť
Christof Wegmann, CTO of Exit Games replies:â€ťWe are extremely honored that Photon was chosen once more by an AAA publisher and studio. Codemasters has developed and published so many stunning games and now the companyâ€™s next online game titles will all be powered by our Photon engine. I think it really proves that we are on track with Photon to become the leading network engine not only for Unity projects, but on all platforms.â€ť
