On August 24th, Unity announced it had acquired the AI-driven platform OTO. The terms of this deal have not been disclosed at this time.
As a result of this agreement, OTO will be fully integrated into Unity’s Vivox voice chat platform. This acquisition aims to eliminate toxic behavior in the gaming space.
“Over the past year, we saw how people all over the world found respite in gaming, due to the desire to connect with friends and family,” said Felix Thé, Unity’s VP of Product Management. “The findings of our survey being released today also illustrate that with the rise in cross-platform, multiplayer gaming, most players also felt there was a surge in toxic behavior. With OTO’s integration into our portfolio of gaming services, we aim to empower creators with a simple, scalable solution to design safe virtual environments that promote friendly experiences and detect problematic social behaviors.”
