If you're hiring less writers to write the dialogue that AI writes instead...isn't that replacing writers?

Exactly he doesn't see it replacing devs... Immediately mentions replacing writers hahaha

It also means the same amount of writers can now produce more dialogues with the same amount of budgets, game development doesn't have infinite budget, AI when used correctly, can help generate some dialogues, and then still need writers to have another pass through to make sure those make sense in the game world.

Not really, its a different role. Now you're scripting ai on how they should respond, keywords, language, etc

If anything, you'll need to be a good script writer to direct ai npcs.

Its a new field for them!

This is the thing. First AI will be used to get rid of all the low level repetitive task and as it evolves it will be used to get rid of more people.

Star Wars: Hunters Review | GamingonPhone

Vince Zyle writes "Star Wars Hunters is a really fun game! It’s not as good as other Star Wars games like Star Wars Battlefront 2 but coming from a developer like Zynga who worked on very underwhelming and low-quality titles before, this is a major upgrade.

There’s not much objectively wrong with the game aside from the work needed to make visuals smoother during animations. That’s one of the biggest issues at present alongside frame drops that occur from time to time when there’s too much going on which isn’t too bad but certainly noticeable.

In conclusion, Star Wars Hunters is a game for arena shooter fans who are looking for an action-filled game. Some of the other issues will hopefully be ironed out with future updates."
