Microsoft has confirmed that it has acquired Simplygon, a studio that provides 3D optimisation technology to AAA and indie developers.
In the blog post announcing the move, Kudo Tsunoda of Microsoft said
This acquisition accelerates our 3D For Everyone vision and strategy, which we introduced with the Windows 10 Creators Update at our event this past October in New York.
Simplygon’s technology and talent will strengthen our position in 3D creation, making it easier to capture, create and share in 3D. It builds on and extends our aspirations to empower a new wave of creativity with the Windows 10 Creators Update, Paint 3D and our online creator community at Remix3D.com
