Unpacking the Collaboration

Immutable X is set to become a part of Amazon's ISV Accelerate Program, a co-sell initiative for organizations offering software solutions compatible with AWS. This partnership will open doors to a network of potential game studio partners and access to dedicated resources from AWS, facilitating prospective deals. AWS Account Managers will also be incentivized to generate leads for Immutable, fostering mutual growth.

A noteworthy aspect of this partnership is Immutable's ability to offer AWS cloud credits to game studios through AWS Activate, providing up to $100,000 to cover cloud services. This partnership aspires to simplify the game development process, enabling studios to create gaming experiences with ease.

A Game-Changer for the Industry

With enhanced developer support, deal referrals, and a robust pipeline of opportunities, Immutable stands poised to redefine the gaming landscape. Their ecosystem encompasses various game studios and players, vital ecosystem partners, and infrastructure components, ensuring a secure and reliable gaming environment. This Immutable-AWS collaboration seeks to empower builders and gamers by merging gaming technology with digital asset ownership.

Why This Matters

Immutable's faith in AWS is rooted in factors such as security, performance, proximity to users, and developer environment flexibility. As Immutable has grown, it has collaborated with industry leaders like GameStop and Illuvium to integrate solutions into the game development process. The partnership with AWS further enhances Immutable's scalability, offering security and over 99 percent uptime, crucial elements in the evolving web3 gaming industry.

AWS is supporting Immutable's development by onboarding new game studios and providing them with resources through our AWS Activate startup program and AWS’s ISV Accelerate Program, which give them the tools to accelerate their global launch.
