Ubisoft is Developing AI Ghostwriter for NPC Interactions

May 5, 2023 | Automation

I asked last week whether any big games developers were integrating AI models for NPC conversations and I now have an answer.

Ubisoft recently announced Ghostwriter, an AI tool they developed which aims to support scriptwriters by generating first drafts for NPC interactions.

Although they say it’s not adding the models directly into games themselves, they hope this tool will be a way to quickly generate variations on NPC dialogue, to make conversations less repetitive and free up time for writers to work on other core game elements.
