Launching new games into the global marketplace requires a robust, reliable and expandable online infrastructure. For game developers and gamers alike, latency can be a huge obstacle; gamers are likely to give up on a game if latency impacts the overall experience, causing considerable impact to a game’s reputation.
Renown for our flexible and customizable approach to IaaS, gaming innovators, developers, and industry leaders choose THG Hosting to deliver a flawless gaming experience. In fact, our network and industry-leading hardware are utilized by one of the world’s best real-time development platforms; here’s why.
Why latency is the biggest killer
Nothing frustrates gamers more than laggy gameplay. Particularly in the instance of first-person shooter (FPS) games, a few vital milliseconds of delay can be the difference between victory and disaster.
A few factors can result in latency, including distance from the host server, traffic loads, and overloaded servers. Whilst it is not (yet) possible to eliminate latency completely, it can be reduced so as not to impact gameplay; that’s where we come in.
