Simplygon is a Sweden-based company that works on developing solutions for the automatic optimization of 3D-data. Now the company has been acquired by Microsoft. Microsoft will be releasing the Windows 10 Creators update and that will focus on content creators that include 3D content creators as well. The acquisition of Simplygon might help out in that regard.

According to Simplygon:

We’re excited to announce that Simplygon has been acquired by Microsoft!

Throughout our journey, we’ve been laser-focused on helping developers push the boundaries of 3D. From our early days delivering advanced level-of-detail solutions to the adoption of Simplygon SDK by most leading AAA game development studios, and our more recent expansion into enterprise AR/VR, Simplygon has made automatic 3D data-optimization increasingly more accessible to developers. Our next challenge is 3D For Everyone, the ultimate accessibility! We’re thrilled to join forces with Microsoft to make this happen.

Thank you to everyone who has helped us along the way – our customers, partners, investors and employees.

According to 

I am pleased to announce that Microsoft has acquired Simplygon, a premier developer of automatic 3D data optimization solutions. This acquisition accelerates our 3D For Everyone vision and strategy, which we introduced with the Windows 10 Creators Update at our event this past October in New York.

Simplygon’s technology and talent will strengthen our position in 3D creation, making it easier to capture, create and share in 3D. It builds on and extends our aspirations to empower a new wave of creativity with the Windows 10 Creators Update, Paint 3D and our online creator community at Remix3D.com.

It will be interesting to see what kind of new features Windows 10 will be getting now that the new acquisition is onboard as well. What do you think about this new acquisition?
