Neil Druckmann, the co-president of Naughty Dog, recently spoke about the use of AI in game development, stating that while there are clear ethical concerns, it will "revolutionize" the process.

The details:

  • In an interview for Sony's Creative Entertainment Vision series, Druckmann was asked how he sees the "fusion of storytelling and technology evolving over the next 10 years." The director believes accessible tools will allow even "non-technical people" to realize their ideas and "create worlds and narratives to their heart's content."

  • Druckmann used AI as an example, stating that it will “revolutionize how content is being created, although it does bring up some ethical issues we need to address." He explained that AI and the ability to capture motion at home will result in lower costs and fewer technical barriers for future projects, allowing for more "adventurous" games.

  • AI has become a point of contention across creative industries, with some seeing it as a useful tool and others claiming that it "steals" content to train its algorithms and is intended to eventually replace existing jobs entirely. Earlier this year, Embark Studios received criticism from voice actors for using AI voiceovers in The Finals, with designers arguing that AI voice lines should only be used temporarily until an actor records them.
