Alex Hutchinson was Creative Director at Ubisoft, he worked on Assassin’s Creed III and Far Cry 4, founded Typhoon Studios and developed Journey to the Savage Planet, the studio now belongs to Google. Man has quite a reputation, but Everybody makes mistakes.
This week, Twitch deleted millions of videos on its platform, following complaints from major record companies who did not like to see their music used in streams. Alex Hutchinson reacted to this case
explaining that videographers should be afraid that video game studios will do the same :
The real truth is the streamers should be paying the developers and publishers of the games they stream. They should be buying a license like any real business and paying for the content they use.— Alex Hutchinson (@BangBangClick) October 22, 2020
Streamers worried about their content being taken down for using music they haven’t paid for should be more concerned that they are also streaming games they haven’t paid for. Everything would be removed as soon as the editors decide to apply it.
The truth is, streamers should pay the developers and publishers for the games they stream. They should buy a license like any real business and pay for the content they use.
Words that made thousands of players and Internet users jump on their chairs, as the situation has nothing to do. Many people recalled thatcurrently, it is the studios that call on streameurs to promote their games, with the famous influencers and special op. A win-win principle that seems to go to everyone, normally. Besides, Alex Hutchinson’s studio is owned by Google, who own YouTube, the latter platform having a tab specially dedicated to gaming, and therefore to streaming. And, anyway, video game publishers already have their hands on removing or blocking video content with the DMCA.
More comically, the journalist
recalls that it is the high-placed members of the studios who earn $ 30 million per year, and that developers hardly ever see the color of all this money. Stronger still, Alex Hutchinson’s Profile Banner Twitter a fanart of streameur
Idk maybe you're getting flak because you're picking this particular battle in a world where C-suite executives make $30m/year and devs don't get royalties so they'd never see any of that streaming money in the first place— Jason Schreier (@jasonschreier) October 22, 2020
, made by an artist while playing Journey to the Planet Savage, and the boss of Typhoon Studios did not include the signature of the designer in the framing. The irony is powerful here. Last point that bothered, Alex Hutchinson appeared on Twitter like “Creative Director @ Google Stadia”, suggesting that he had a major position in the firm, but no, he is indeed a creative director at Typhoon Studios, which is owned by Stadia. A text now modified.
I find this thinking extremely ironic considering you have fanart of me, a streamer, as your banner from when I played Savage Planet https://t.co/vr4M8WjBAS— Jacksepticeye (@Jack_Septic_Eye) October 23, 2020
Faced with this outcry, Google reacted and indicated in a statement to 9to5Google what “Recent tweets from Alex Hutchinson, creative director at Stadia Games and Entertainment studio in Montreal, do not reflect those from Stadia, YouTube or Google”. The firm is therefore distancing itself, and it’s a safe bet that there will be some reprimands in the coming days. You can buy Journey to the Savage Planet at € 27.35 on Amazon.fr.
