Ex-BioWare Boss Joins Video Game Cloud Company Improbable

Aaryn Flynn will open a new games office in Edmonton, Canada.

Aaryn Flynn, the former general manager of BioWare, has joined cloud gaming company Improbable as its general manager. Improbable announced that Flynn will be starting up a new office in Edmonton, Canada.

Flynn left BioWare in 2017 after 17 years at the company. Now, Flynn will set up a North American office for Improbable in Edmonton. Improbable's main office is based out of London, but according to GamesIndustry.biz it sounds like Flynn will be setting up some kind of games office in Canada.

Though whatever Improbable and Flynn are making in Edmonton doesn't sound strictly like a game studio. Flynn says that he will be hiring from a pool of AI developers, full stack online developers, and more. Improbable's key tool is SpatialOS, a cloud platform that leverages cloud technology to create huge video game worlds.

By offsetting the costs for servers, SpatialOS will make it so that smaller studios can create massive, MMO worlds, or other intensive games. Earlier this year Chinese video game giant NetEase invested $50 million into Improbable for a "small equity stake" and announced plans to develop games using SpatialOS.
