Kynogon announces that its Kynapse AI middleware has been chosen by Sony Online Entertainment for the development of their upcoming massively multi-player online action game set in the DC Comics Universe.

John Blakely, VP of Development at SOE’s Austin, Texas studio, sees Kynogon’s technology as instrumental in helping the development team deal with the complexities faced with online games. “We were looking for an AI solution that would be capable of dealing with dynamic large scale worlds in a seamless manner. By using Kynapse we have a powerful technology to manage extremely dynamic environments and very large maps. Our team can concentrate on the creative elements of the game faster in the development process, and thus enhance the game-play experience.”

Pierre Pontevia, CEO of Kynogon, added: “Sony Online Entertainment is a true leader in online gaming. They have very high standards that push technology to its limits, continuously pursuing and realizing ambitious projects. We are very excited that the Kynapse engine has been chosen for this title based in the DC Comics universe. This choice represents for us a big recognition of our technology’s capacity to deal with complex, dynamic and large environments in the online gaming segment.”
