Here at Microsoft, one of our biggest goals is to drive innovation that empowers creators to build great games and reach the players who will love them. Helping creators bring their stories to life is something we share with our longtime partner, Unity, a global leader in real-time 3D technology. We're both committed to expanding the creation and distribution of 3D content, to bringing relevant tools and technologies to a wider range of developers, and to making it easier than ever to bring games to players.

Today, in a post on The Official Microsoft Blog, Sarah Bond, CVP of Game Creator Experiences and Ecosystem at Microsoft, announced that Unity has selected Azure as its cloud partner for building and operating real-time 3D (RT3D) experiences from the Unity engine. In addition, we're excited to work together to make it easier for game creators around the world to publish to Xbox consoles and PC so they can reach their communities.

Our ambition to democratize development of games and game-like experiences around the world and across industries depends on strong partnerships, particularly with game engines like Unity. As 3D interactive experiences continue to evolve in both the gaming and non-gaming worlds, Microsoft and Unity are empowering a wave of new creators to define the digital worlds of tomorrow.
