“We look forward to working together as they explore new ways to create unique gaming experiences for the future using Microsoft cloud technologies.”

This ‘strategic alliance’ will aid SEGA in their development of their “Super Game” project. This is still currently years away from launching. SEGA’s “Super Game” is focusing on key pillars such as “Global”, “Online”, “Community” & “IP Utilization”. SEGA also plans to see if this partnership can assist in building long term network infrastructure and communication system.
