Immutable, a web3 gaming platform, has partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide more options for game developers.

Expanding its startup accelerator programs, AWS has added Immutable to a list of companies in its ISV (independent software vendors) Accelerate Program.

This program includes businesses that offer software solutions that run on or integrate with AWS. Furthermore, developers interested in building on Immutable’s blockchain can join AWS Activate, a program that provides perks such as technical support, training, and $100,000 worth of AWS cloud credits.

According to John Kearney, the head of startups Australia at AWS, Immutable is a local Aussie startup that has successfully expanded globally. AWS is committed to developing Web3 game development using its infrastructure.

Immutable has been built with Amazon EventBridge and AWS Lambda, serverless services that connect application components using events. As stated in the announcement, this has enabled the platform to increase its scalability and handle a 10x increase in partnered games.

Concerns have been raised about the centralization of gaming and Ethereum, as well as the reliance on Amazon, which is the market leader, capturing about a third of the cloud services market.

Michael Powell, the product marketing lead, addressed some of the concerns regarding immutability, explaining to Fortune: “A lot of blockchain purists are very big into the idea of decentralization and that everything has to be on-chain and that’s a massive deviation from where game developers actually build.”

In August, Immutable partnered with Polygon Labs to publicly test its zero-knowledge Ethereum Virtual Machine (zkEVM). The firm claims that the zkEVM will lower development costs for game developers while providing the benefits of security and network effects that the Ethereum ecosystem offers.

In March 2022, Immutable raised $200 million in a Series C funding round, primarily led by Singaporean state-owned investment firm Temasek, and was valued at $2.5 billion.
