Today we are excited to announce that the world’s leading creative and gaming development platform, Unity, is partnering with the leading augmented reality development platform, Vuforia. Unity and Vuforia share a common mission to democratize AR development and will work together to integrate the Vuforia platform into Unity for a seamless development experience.
Unity and Vuforia are already used together by developers who have created leading titles and experiences from EA, Square Enix, LEGO, HASBRO, Mattel, Activision and more. Integrating the offerings will further simplify and enhance the development process to drive greater adoption of AR experiences. Expected in a Spring 2017 release, direct integration will also improve the performance of AR games and applications. Unity and PTC will work together on system optimization to camera and rendering pipelines, for more realistic AR effects.
