Managing and preparing for the launch of a AAA live game can be overwhelming at times, especially with a small team. In this session, hear how Ubisoft Montréal launched Rainbow Six Extraction with a dedicated deployment pipeline built with automation and redundancy in mind as well as leveraging the Amazon GameLift multi-Region feature.
