CMGE also plans to use machine learning to improve the AI of its games, making them more challenging and engaging.

The partnership between CMGE and Microsoft Azure OpenAI is a significant development for the gaming industry. It is the first time that a major Chinese gaming company has partnered with a Western technology company to use artificial intelligence to improve its games.
The partnership is likely to lead to the development of more immersive and engaging mobile games. There are benefits that CMGE expects to gain from the partnership with Microsoft Azure OpenAI:

This partnership will likely boost Microsoft Azure's market share and revenue in the global cloud infrastructure market, which is expected to reach $237 billion in 2023. According to Statista, Microsoft Azure had a 23 percent market share in the first quarter of 2023, behind Amazon Web Services (AWS) with 32 percent and ahead of Google Cloud with 10 percent.
By partnering with Tencent, one of the largest gaming companies in the world, Microsoft Azure will gain access to a huge customer base and potentially increase its competitive edge over its rivals.
