Table-Topic: Building Stronger Bonds: Technical Outsourcing Amidst 2024 Industry Changes

Technical outsourcing in AAA game development has seen fewer publications compared to art outsourcing. This discussion attempts to fill this gap by exploring challenges in External Development and sharing insights gained while working with worldwide partners. We explore the complex dynamics between developers and outsourcers and discuss how to move beyond a plain “asset manufacturer” step towards integrated partnership, leveraging outsourcer-specific expertise to contribute and extend the core team’s knowledge base and development capabilities This session will help Developers and Service Providers understand the challenges faced by both sides and how to build a more sustainable collaboration based on lessons from the pandemic and recent industry events.
