GDC 2019: VIVE Announced Partnership with Photon
At the annual Game Developer Conference, VIVE hosted a Developer Day where company executives and engineers spent the day sharing information on their newest developer tools, their platform strategy and their new partnership with Photon to make development of connected VR experiences simple.
Enhancing VR experiences with multiplayer or multi-user features significantly helps to build truly immersive customer experiences. That’s why Photon is used by thousands of VR developers all over the world including companies like Ubisoft, Facebook or Volkswagen.
Now our partnership with HTC provides VIVEPORT developers with an integrated platform to create outstanding connected VR applications ranging from games to business-critical enterprise apps.
As Vive supports our vision of cross-platform interaction, the partnership includes that Viveport users can be easily matched with both Steam and Oculus players via Photon’s matchmaking & authentication services.
There have been never better times to develop VR games and apps. Please read more at our Viveport landing page: https://www.photonengine.com/viveport
