Blizzard to Utilize AI Game Tools for Overwatch: NYT

Blizzard Entertainment is experimenting with generative AI in game development, according to a report by the New York Times, joining other game developers like FIFA in using AI to enhance gameplay.

Blizzard Entertainment—the studio behind Diablo, World of Warcraft, and Overwatch—is experimenting with generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) as part of game development, reports by a report by the New York Times.

Blizzard’s move into artificial intelligence was announced internally the previous  30 days in an email from Blizzard’s chief design officer, Allen Adham, the New York Times said.

“We are on the brink of a major evolution in how we build and manage our games,” Adham wrote, telling staff to prepare to be amazed.

Other game developers that have acknowledged that they are leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) include FIFA, which launched a mobile AI-Powered World Cup Soccer game in April.

“Our approach at Blizzard is to use machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in ways that are additive, empathic, and allow our talented teams to spend more time on the highest quality creative thinking and tasks,” Blizzard President Mike Ybarra stated on Twitter.

Ybarra’s comments came in response to asserts that Blizzard would use generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) to replace human artists. A similar concern is likewise a focal point of the Writer’s Guild of America strike, as of now in its fourth week.

In what has been stated as an ” Artificial Intelligence (AI) arms race,” top technology corporations, including Google and Microsoft, have pushed hard into artificial intelligence since the public launch of OpenAI’s ChatGPT last November. Microsoft has reportedly invested over $13 Billion in OpenAI, and Google investing $300 Million in its Bard Artificial Intelligence (AI) project.

Although while the excitement around generative Artificial Intelligence (AI) has taken the tech world by storm, numerous corporations, including Blizzard, have warned their employees against using third party Artificial Intelligence (AI) programs for work, fearing the loss of confidential company data and intellectual property.

Earlier these 30 days, smartphone giants, Apple and Samsung, prohibited employees from using our  trending Artificial Intelligence (AI) chatbot, ChatGPT, citing concerns that the data is stored on external servers and may be viewed by others using the program.

Reports by the New York Times, Blizzard has deployed its own Artificial Intelligence (AI) tools internally, which is out of the reach of most smaller game development shops. Even so, some employees have reportedly stated the company’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology falls short in catching bugs or interacting with games—with one previous employee saying the company is “ignoring their complications and focusing on hype words that they think will sound impressive to shareholders.”
