Immutable doubles down on web3 gaming with Polygon

The two companies have pooled their efforts to boost crypto gaming and widen its appeal.

Gaming firm Immutable and blockchain company Polygon Labs have teamed up to work on solutions to broaden adoption of blockchain gaming.

Commenting on the alliance, Immutable co-founder and president Robbie Ferguson described the tie-up as a “pretty obvious play”.

Ferguson said that Polygon has a key role to play in bringing web3 games to a wider public, acknowledging the limitations of the Ethereum protocol and its scalability.

With Polygon, Immutable can overcome these limitations and make it simpler for mass audiences to access web3-enabled games.

These games can become faster, easier, carry less risk and appeal to developers of triple-A games. Immutable is operating in a nascent but vibrant industry and ecosystem.

In 2022 alone, start-ups focusing on expanding web3 and blockchain games received a total of $2bn in investment.

Now, Immutable and Polygon have a chance to make accessibility and scalability a thing, driving even greater interest in the segment.

Essentially, Immutable wants Polygon to help it with its Ethereum Virtual Machine, which the company refers to as zkEVM in its own verbiage.

This solution is capable of compressing data to dramatically improve scaling and security on the blockchain which means that games can run smoother, support more players and generally open the sluicegates to mass adoption.

Polygon Labs president Ryan Wyatt was similarly pleased with the opportunity. He called the Polygon solution a very clean way to beget a new era of scalability on the blockchain, which will enable the growth of web3-based gaming.
