Unity, a platform widely used by many game developers to create new projects, announces a partnership with Microsoft Azure to bring Create Solutions to the cloud. This Unity and Microsoft partnership allows for the development of a cloud infrastructure to meet the needs of developers and improve games and other experiences.
Unity and Microsoft will also work together to make it easier to build and distribute games on Windows and Xbox. Cloud gaming platforms such as Xbox Cloud Gaming are gaining more and more traction and allowing gamers to access great titles even without a high-end console or PC.
Based on this, Microsoft is increasing its efforts in creating cloud-focused games through a partnership with Unity, the developer of one of the most popular graphics engines today.
“Our commitment to creators is something we share with our longtime partner, Unity, a global leader in real-time 3D technology,” notes CVP of Game Creator Experiences and Ecosystem at Microsoft Sarah Bond. “ We’re also committed to expanding the creation and distribution of 3D content, to bringing relevant tools and technologies to a wider range of developers, and to making it easier than ever to bring games to players.”
This certainly opens up a huge range of possibilities for both companies, not only in game development, but also in TV, film, and other uses of 3D tools.
“By engineering improved developer tools, leveraging the latest platform innovation from silicon to cloud, and simplifying the publishing experience, Unity creators will be able to realize their dreams by bringing their games to more gamers around the world,” says Bond.
