"it allows developers to reduce development time and risk while focusing on their gameplay"

thats sounds like a positive effect...and there may be a better menu/interface/lobby system

Wow this might actually be good news.

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">DemonWare develops and sells real-time network software for the electronic entertainment industry. Our focus lies in creating middleware and components that reduce the development workloads and risks associated with multiplayer game development. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

So the netcode is about to be handled by a dev team that specializes solely in that.

sounds like it is just middleware for porting code between consoles and what not. I doubt it has anything to do with game features, design, or graphics.

Middleware is all about pipeline improvements between differant platforms. When a developer write code for a game, they have to port it to each platform, the middleware is to keep everything in a common language. The downside is that middleware can be restrictive. The end results will be the same. It is probably late in the DA production schedule to actually start using it(unless they already were).

Ah, I had some very interesting things on a new type of gluecode called Reo (on my uni). It can be seen as middleware but it's far more low-level http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Really cool stuff with channels and stuff.
