Bethesda Announces Orion Streaming Tech

Bethesda Softworks announces Orion, "a patented collection of software technologies that optimize game engines for superior performance in a streaming environment." Developed by id Software, they say this is "platform-agnostic" game streaming technology to allow games to stream with lower latency and lower bandwidth at higher quality. Here's a bit:

In contrast to game streaming services that focus on hardware solutions to stream games, Orion is game engine-based technology that optimizes a game for the cloud. Integrated within the game engine itself, Orion can achieve dramatic latency reductions of up to 20% per frame and requires up to 40% less bandwidth. The Orion technology is complementary to the hardware technology in data centers built by other streaming providers, ensuring much better results when paired together.

Did all the big publishers meet together sometime in the distance past to discuss making streaming tech a thing?

yeah,... the words Bethesda & made by ID software - don't exactly scream a feeling of trust and awesomeness that they once did.

Coming from a company that can't ship a AAA PC title that does not require extensive modding to work, I am sure this works just fine out of the box.

The land in Minecraft is flat, Minecraft simulates the Earth, ergo the Earth is flat.

There used to be a time when I would see "Developed by id Software" and I would take a serious look into the technology.
I'm afraid that time has long past now.
