Tech company Unity is set to open a games development facility in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
According to Tech Wire Asia, the San Francisco-based firm is partnering up with Malaysia’s Digital Economy Corporation (MDEC) to open its first Southeast Asian facility in an incubator space called LEVEL UP.
The Southeast Asian Centre of Innovation will aim to provide developers and start-ups in the region with access to Unity tools, resources and analytics to aid in marketing their games globally. The centre will specialise in supporting early-stage game creation.
There are currently nine development studios set up in MDEC’s incubator.
“To be the first country in Southeast Asia to establish a Unity Centre of Innovation marks a significant milestone in our mission to position Malaysia as a regional hub for game production and development by 2025,” said MDEC COO Ng Wan Peng.
Unity Asia Pacific president Hubert Larenaudie added: “We have seen the enthusiasm and passion of Malaysian game developers and are dedicated to supporting their growth with Unity’s latest technologies.”
