Unity Technologies has completed its acquisition of the high-performance remote desktop and streaming technology company Parsec, just over a month after announcing the initial agreement. The $320 million deal will see the team at Parsec officially joining Unity as the two companies work towards “democratizing access to all of the tools and software needed to build and enjoy interactive 3D experiences.”
“Streaming real-time and interactive content from the cloud or another computer to your laptop, phone, AR glasses, and more will open up a plethora of opportunities for creators and anyone else to change the digital world around them,” said Benjy Boxer, the CEO of Parsec. “We’re just getting started. And within Unity, we have even greater resources and opportunities to help shape this future.”
Before this move, Unity was already one of the biggest game and development engines, along with having a vast library of tools used for creating and operating content across phones, tablets, PCs, consoles, and augmented and virtual reality devices. Acquiring Parsec was a step toward a future in cloud service operation, opening the door for more accessibility in the high-fidelity, interactive, and immersive industry of game development.
Right now, the team is focused on trying to reach a place where it can give creators the freedom to work from anywhere while limiting technological factors that could hold them back through the use of Parsec.
