According to Murray, first of all, Hello Games will help studios, working on games with procedural levels generation. With its use, many elements of the game are distributed in a random order, so that users do not leave a sense of novelty. The developer claims that behind this technology lies the future of his studio and the entire gaming industry.

How Hello Games sees the future?

I’m sure that the random level generator will soon become a full-fledged part of game development, its elements have already been used in such large projects as Horizon Zero Dawn and Ghost Recon: Wildlands.

This process is also an important part of the future Hello Games. We want to continue working on strange and unique solutions that one day will help us create a new technology that will impact the entire industry.
