How we provided the infrastructure for the global release of Saber Interactive video games

Saber Interactive is an American video game development and publishing company founded in Florida in 2001. It has more than 20 studios and 2,500 employees worldwide and is part of the Embracer Group.

The company’s game titles include Space Marine 2, World War Z, Evil Dead: The Game, SnowRunner, and A Quiet Place.

The task

In April 2019, Saber Interactive collaborated with Paramount Pictures to release a co-op third-person shooter. The plot was based on the 2013 movie about the war of worlds.

While predicting the success of the game, Saber Interactive made sure it didn’t disappoint. It required a global hosting network with a worldwide presence.

“We have extensive experience in launching various video games, and we understand how important it is to retain gamers with quality service. It’s not only about the excellent and interesting gameplay, but also about the speed of loading and processing operations within the game. That’s why, even before the official release, we chose Gcore as our primary hosting provider for dedicated servers. The company already had vast experience working on infrastructure for such companies as Wargaming, Bandai Namco, and Exit Games, so we put our trust in them.”

The result

In the first week of release, the game became the best-seller in the UK (more than 2 million copies in the first month). It entered all sorts of top charts and garnered a huge number of fans around the world. For example, it became one of the best-selling games in all formats in Japan during the first week.

Thanks to stable global hosting by Gcore, Saber Interactive managed not only to successfully launch the game, but also to maintain interest in it for years.
