Google Cloud announced its recent alliance with Unity at the Unite Berlin conference this week. Unity is a popular game development platform for a real-time 3D game and content creation. Google Cloud stated that they are building a suite of managed services and tools for creating connected games. This suite will be much focussed on real-time multiplayer experiences.
With this Google Cloud becomes the default cloud provider helping developers build connected games using Unity. It will also assist them to easily build and scale their games. Additionally, developers will get an advantage of Google Cloud right from the Unity development environment without needing to become cloud experts.
The reason Google Cloud collaborates with Unity is to create an open source for connecting players in multiplayer games. This project mainly aims at creating an open source, community-driven solutions built in collaboration with the world’s leading game companies.
Unity will also be migrating all of the core infrastructure powering its services and offerings to Google Cloud. Unity will also be running its business on the same cloud that Unity game developers will develop, test and globally launch their games.
John Riccitiello, Chief Executive Officer, Unity Technologies, said, “Migrating our infrastructure to Google Cloud was a decision based on the company’s impressive global reach and product quality. Now, Unity developers will be able to take advantage of the unparalleled capabilities to support their cloud needs on a global scale.”
Google Cloud plans to release new products and features over the coming months. Keep yourself updated on this alliance by checking out Unity’s homepage.
