Unity Technology Joins Forces With Qualcomm Technologies
Unity Technology has really been paving a way for developers lately, making tools that scale from the $0 budget basement indie titles, to the AAA games that will appear on today's generation consoles and the upcoming next-generation consoles from Microsoft and Sony. Today, Unity and Qualcomm announced that they have partnered together for both hardware and software ventures, mostly with Unity loading a lot of support for Qualcomm's Snapdragon-powered devices.
Raj Talluri, senior vice-president of product management at Qualcomm Technologies commented about the collaboration, saying...
“Qualcomm Technologies is passionate about mobile gaming, so we’re very excited to be working with an industry leader in game engine and tool technologies such as Unity Technologies,”...“This collaboration will allow the two companies to optimize the strength of Unity’s powerful rendering engine with the integrated OpenGL ES 3.0 compliant Adreno GPUs and high performance multi-core CPUs of the Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. As a result, this will help bring exceptional gaming experiences to consumers.”
Unity will be unleashing various games to coincide with their partnership with Qualcomm. The games won't be arriving until later this year, however, so you'll need to wait a while before seeing the fruits of the tag-team labors between Unity and Qualcomm.
We've seen Unity in the news lately a lot due to their announcement for supporting the PlayStation 4, as well as adding official support for the Oculus Rift, this is in addition to a whole bunch of games running on the Unity Engine, including Double Fine's recently announced Broken Age. Adding additional support for mobile devices and Qualcomm-powered devices should prove to be interesting.
David Helgason, CEO of Unity Technologies commented about the news, saying...
“We’re excited to work with an innovative global mobile technology provider such as Qualcomm Technologies and support their incredible Snapdragon processors, which are at the heart of many Android and Windows mobile devices across the globe.”
