Is it true that Snapchat have bought PlayCavas? If so, are there any guarantees for it’s future as a platform for independent development?
I’m in the process of prototyping to see if PC should be the platform for our new product, so obviously this is a little concerning.
i read this as well. Does this mean we lose the engine ?
PlayCanvas were acquired last May. https://techcrunch.com/2018/03/23/snap-reportedly-buys-its-own-3d-game-engine/
Given all the updates to the engine and editor, it looks like they are committed in continuing the product.
PlayCanvas is here to stay. I suggest you hit the ‘Watch’ button on GitHub to keep track of all the incoming features.
Even better, join in the open source effort and start contributing.
@will - if I can get this prototype sorted and persuade my board, then that’s not impossible.
Any news on Playcanvas will stay a platform for independent development?
