Global video game company Xsolla has made a strategic acquisition of AcceleratXR, a developer of server-side technology for live-service video games and software. AcceleratXR provides powerful game server backend technology that can support a wide range of platforms, including mobile, console, desktop, and more. Therefore, this fits well within the growth trajectory of Xsolla.
What does this mean for the gaming ecosystem?
Xsolla is an international e-commerce platform for video games, providing a suite of strong, purpose-built products and services. Its goal is to make it easier for its partners to expand their geographic reach, increase their revenue, and build relationships with gamers all over the world by easing the burden of the inherent complications of global distribution, marketing, and monetization.
The AcceleratXR platform and network engine provide excellent scalability, allowing for cross-platform and cross-device support for user experiences. It performs similarly to a modern operating system designed for interacting with rich digital media.
Building on AcceleratXR significantly decreases development time and cost by improving connectivity between these different gaming interfaces. This allows developers to more efficiently deploy large-scale, cross-platform games.
The AcceleratXR team believes that Xsolla’s acquisition strengthens the company’s commitment to democratising access to game creation tools and improving the quality of life for gamers worldwide. This purchase highlights an industry-wide trend towards promoting out-of-the-box cross-play and cross-pay solutions that provide gamers the freedom to use the same account and purchase history across many platforms. Thise is all-inclusive, covering PCs, gaming consoles, mobile phones, and virtual reality headsets.
“Today, we welcome AcceleratXR, a significant new addition to the Xsolla game tech family,” said Chris Hewish, Xsolla’s CEO.
Teams of any size or experience level can use the tools provided by AcceleratXR to create innovative online and multiplayer experiences. AcceleratXR offers one of the most adaptable and feature-rich platform for creating games, digital entertainment, the metaverse, and more, with more than 20 specialised systems like live cloud scripting.
