By 2018, Rockstar hopes to make Rockstar servers accessible to the whole world.
While that sounds a lot like Google’s Play service, there’s no telling how far this will go.
Rockstar Games has been quietly working on ways to make its servers accessible for people outside of North America for years now.
RockStar has partnered with the gaming giant to make servers available to anyone in the US and Europe.
In a blog post, RockStar’s head of global studios, Brian Crecente, confirmed the servers would eventually be available to users anywhere in North America and Europe and confirmed that the servers were in the works for 2018.
“With Rockstar Studios being a global studio, we’ve been working to deliver our servers in the best way possible for the global community,” Crecentre wrote.
“We are excited to be able to serve you in North and South America, Europe, and Japan.”
This is good news for the Rockstar fanbase, as Rockstar has long been known for its accessibility, as evidenced by its own servers being open to players from anywhere, and for its upcoming open beta that will allow players to play on its servers.
Rockster is also working on a feature for its next-generation consoles, including the Xbox One S and PlayStation 4 Pro, that will let users log in from anywhere on their home network and play their games from there.
There’s no word on when this feature will be available.
Rockstock will also be open to anyone who wants to use its server for their own personal use.
