Immutable has partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to streamline blockchain gaming infrastructure for developers.

Teaming up with AWS allows Immutable to tap into valuable technical resources and support, boosting its capabilities in the blockchain gaming world, and simultaneously driving innovation and growth.

The blockchain gaming company, known for its Ethereum layer-2 scaling solution, will leverage a vast network of potential game studio collaborators through AWS, according to a Tuesday announcement.

Immutable has joined Amazon’s Independent Software Vendors (ISV) Accelerate Program, which offers support and advantages to partner with AWS sellers worldwide.

“This will allow Immutable to gain access to expert resources from AWS to help secure prospective customers and ultimately close deals with major game studios from around the world,” Immutable said.

An Immutable spokesperson described the ISV Accelerate Program as “very prestigious,” saying that members need to meet strict industry standards and undergo a thorough evaluation to be accepted.

To work with AWS, Immutable has to meet certain criteria, like signing a non-disclosure agreement, going through a business review and maintaining at least $350,000 in AWS revenue through the partner network over a year.

There’s typically no direct program fee, but organizations may need to invest in their software solutions on AWS.

“There’s no payment involved on either side,” the spokesperson told Blockworks. 

“This is a mutually beneficial collaboration for both Immutable and AWS. Both companies will work together to accelerate the mass adoption and development of Web3 gaming space, both from technical and commercial standpoints,” they added.

Game developers utilizing Immutable will now be able to be part of AWS Activate, a program that provides technical assistance, referral opportunities, up to $100,000 in AWS credits and other resources.

“Today, Web3 gaming is one of the fastest growing sub-sectors of the blockchain industry and is already enjoyed by millions of gamers worldwide,” John Kearney, head of sales at AWS, said in a statement.

AWS is best-known for its versatile cloud computing services. In the context of blockchain gaming, it provides adaptable infrastructure that enables game studios to efficiently manage varying user loads and in-game activities.

Ava Labs struck a partnership with AWS in January in an effort to accelerate blockchain adoption for enterprises, governments and institutions.
