Xbox boss, Phil Spencer has explained why game development will see the impact of COVID-19 in 2021, the executive affirms that remote work causes a major setback for the industry as there are “big limitations on what can be done from home”. Spencer uses MOCAP as an example.
“Mocap is just something that’s basically stopped. We’re not going into mocap studios,” Spencer told Business Insider. “If you had all your animation captured and you’re doing touch up in more individual art production and in areas like textures and other things, you’re in a better position.
