Unity today announced that it is partnering with Microsoft to make Azure the cloud solution to create real-time 3D experiences.
Developers can use Azure and the Unity engine together, which will also reportedly make it easier for them to get their games on PC and Xbox. Unit says it is “creating native capabilities that unlock our tools for more people than ever before.”
Sarah Bond, Microsoft’s CVP of experiences and ecosystem for gamemakers, said in: the announcement“Our ambition to democratize game development and game-like experiences around the world and across industries depends on strong partnerships, especially with game engines like Unity. The partnership between Microsoft and Unity will also allow the makers of Made with Unity games to more easily reach their players on Windows and Xbox devices and unlock new opportunities for success.”
Bond also said real-time simulation will become crucial for several industries, including e-commerce, medicine and manufacturing. “By giving creators easy access to RT3D simulation tools and the ability to create digital twins of real-life places and objects, Unity provides creators with an easy pathway into producing RT3D assets, whether for games or non-gaming worlds. To support this evolution, creators need a technical infrastructure that is as dynamic and innovative as they are. Azure is that solution.”
