Microsoft Acquires Simplygon to Accelerate Innovation

Microsoft has acquired Simplygon, a premier developer of automatic 3D data-optimization solutions. This step will push 3D For Everyone vision and strategy, which Microsoft introduced past October in New York. Simplygon’s technology and talent are said to strengthen company’s 3D aspect. 

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.

CEO Matt Connors, Founder & CTO Ulrik Lindahl, and Co-Founder Koshi Hamedi

Simplygon was originally created by Donya Labs AB in Sweden. Simplygon is considered to be a leader in 3D game optimization that helps developers optimize content production.
