10.6.2021 | Facebook Gaming acquired Unit 2 Games: The developers behind Crayta
The gaming platform of Facebook called “Facebook Gaming” has now acquired Unit 2 Games: the developer behind Crayta – A collaborative game creation platform based on Unreal Engine 4 which was launched last year as a Stadia exclusive.
Although Facebook has legal rights over the technology of Unit 2, as of now users won’t have to worry about it. Based on the FAQs the company posted about the acquisition, the team won't stop working on Crayta, and the game will continue to be available.
Crayta is a platform that gives you an easy way to create your own games — or to create one with collaborators — even if you don't know how to code. You can then have other people play your games and even earn money from your efforts. Facebook purchased the company to make "game creation more accessible and easy to use and is planning to "integrate Crayta's creation toolset into Facebook Gaming's cloud platform to instantly deliver new experiences" on its website.
