Unity partners with Microsoft Azure, will work to build & operate RT3D experiences

The move will make it easier for developers and creators to utilize RT3D tech.


In an announcement on the Microsoft blog today, it was revealed that Unity has chosen to partner with cloud service Microsoft Azure to facilitate the creation and operation of real-time 3D (RT3D) experiences from the Unity engine. In doing so, creators and developers will now have easier access to these tools.

In the blog post, it’s noted that Microsoft is “committed to expanding the creation and distribution of 3D content” by making RT3D tools and tech more widely available, and in doing so will thereby make it easier for developers to “bring games to players.
