Voice technology company Fonix Speech has announced that its VoiceIn technology is a "key element" of the command interface in Tom Clancy's EndWar
, Ubisoft's forthcoming Ubisoft real time strategy title.
Fonix VoiceIn software is designed to allow developers to implement a voice command interface across multiple platforms including Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Mac games.
Tom Clancy's EndWar
will initially be released in English, French, German, Spanish and Italian in the second quarter of 2008, with Japanese and other language versions scheduled for later this year.
According to John Shepherd, Director of Asian Sales for Fonix Speech, "The video gaming industry is seeking new modes of game play and game command to stimulate consumers and capture increased market share. We believe VoiceIn provides added value to publishers by enabling their development teams to offer multi-platform voice command technology, without incurring additional, expensive development costs."
