Sega's upcoming "Super Game" will focus on user-generated content
Sega Chief Operating Officer Shuji Utsumi has revealed new details about the company's upcoming "Super Game," including that it will prioritize content created by its players.
In an interview with CNBC, Utsumi clarified the rumors surrounding the unnamed title, stating that it is "not exactly Metaverse," resulting in the term "Super Game" being coined. He also stated that it would emphasize content created by its players. "It's not only a game, but also community, user-generated content, and a new way of having fun with games," Utsumi explained.
In a recent earnings call, the COO also stated that the game will be released by the end of the fiscal year 2025/26 and that it "builds a whole worldview involving the entire gaming ecosystem, including not only players but also streamers who stream the game and their viewers." This suggests that fans may see Sega's take on the Roblox or Fortnite formula, with tools that allow players to create new experiences using existing and new assets.
Sega's goal with the title is to create a game that is groundbreaking enough to attract more players than all of its previous projects combined. It also intends to build a large community of players and content creators, which will allow it to reach an ever-increasing number of people.
