WB Games New York Builds Platform on AWS to Connect Millions of Players with Game Services
With nearly 100 years in entertainment, Warner Bros. believes in the power of great stories. DC Comics, Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings, and Mortal Kombat are just a few of the globally recognizable franchises that Warner Bros. has adapted across every medium from movies to video games.
Warner Bros. Games New York builds the centralized online platform used by all Warner Bros. Games studios to connect millions of players online on Amazon Web Services (AWS). The backend platform, named Hydra, uses Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon GameLift to enhance online player experiences with services for social media, multiplayer gaming, in-game economies, and more. Using AWS, Warner Bros. Games can scale to handle the launches of its most popular titles, process billions of API requests per day, and support over a million concurrent players at any time.
