Our gaming specialists have been providing optimized localization solutions to a wide range of the most influential gaming companies in the global market, such as Nintendo, SEGA, Sony Entertainment, Riot Games, Gameforge, and GAMEVIL COM2US. Since the gaming specialists are always on the lookout for the latest gaming news, they have decided to compile monthly newsletters for you that are packed with the most up-to-date information from the industry.



Two members of the memoQ Gaming Unit, Emilie Renaud and Santiago de Miguel attended this year’s GDC in San Francisco and they are ready to share their key takeaways. Apart from meeting with existing and soon-to-be memoQ users, testing new games, and attending a Localization Roundtable where the majority of participants were memoQ users, they have observed some interesting trends:

  • AI is becoming more frequently used in numerous stages of the game development cycle. From creating avatars based on your own face to crafting in-game assets, models, and scenes, AI is actively being implemented to speed up the process of game development.
  • VR and AR are thriving technologies. For instance, Sony has just released its new VR2 headset, and a huge number of developers were pitching their virtual and augmented reality games and technologies at GDC. Last but not least, the term “metaverse” was heard all over the venue, at both booths and presentations. 
  • Graphics keep getting better and better. Unreal was showcasing their latest Metahuman developments to create highly realistic human characters, and OptiTrack boasted their motion tracking technology to offer natural character movement in games.
  • Web3 and blockchain also presented their new developments to provide greater user control, security, and transparency over in-game assets and currencies.

Emilie and Santiago were also pleased by the large number of localization agencies and professionals who attended GDC. This shows that localization is a thriving industry that’s making itself more and more visible.
