Unit 2 Games is now part of Facebook Gaming and the company will integrate the ‘Crayta’ tools into the Facebook Gaming cloud. The ‘developer’ is known as Crayta, the collaborative game creation platform built on Unreal Engine 4 that was released as a Stadia exclusive last year.

Facebook will absorb the Unit 2 team and now own their technology as well, although fans have nothing to worry about. Based on the frequently asked questions the company has posted about the acquisition, the team continues to work on Crayta, and the game will continue to be available.

If you’re not familiar with Crayta, this is a platform that offers an easy way to create your own games – or to create one with collaborators – even if you don’t know code. You can then have other people playing your games and even earn money from your efforts. Of course, you’ll be able to conjure up more sophisticated levels and rules if you know how to program and are already experienced in game development, but technical knowledge is not a requirement to get started.

Facebook bought the company to make “game creation more accessible and easier to use”, in fact, it is planning to “integrate Crayta’s creative toolset into Facebook Gaming to instantly deliver new experiences” to its users. When the game creation platform arrived at Stadia last year, it became the launch pad for these “state sharing” features of the service. Status sharing allows you to jump to a title at the same point as your friend or a streamer who is watching via a simple link.

Facebook also said in its acquisition announcement that it is also working on a similar feature and that it believes it can take things much further. He didn’t explain how, but wrote that “the addition of the Unit 2 Games authoring tools will complement and accelerate the company’s efforts. “
