Jagex Teams Up With Improbable For SpatialOS Technology

Jagex today announced that it has entered into a partnership with Improbable. Founded in 2012 by Herman Narula (photograph above), Improbable brings forward its SpatialOS technology which claims to allow developers to create more permanent online worlds with smaller teams. As an example, SpatialOS can manage the state of the world down to the individual item, allowing players to drop items on the floor and (theoretically) have them sit there for years without the need for the server to clean itself up.

Acting CEO Phil Mansell had the following to say about SpatialOS:

“As a studio, we have online gaming at heart and we’ve always looked for technology that can help to deliver the best possible experience for our players. We’re looking forward to working with Improbable and discovering the advancements the SpatialOS platform can bring to multiplayer gaming.”

The extent of SpatialOS’s implementation will have to be seen.
