91% of HoloLens apps are made with Unity, will soon have Mixed Reality native support

It’s already common sense that virtual reality is closely related to the development of apps for mixed reality. The 3D digital images and programs for VR headsets have mostly been made through Unity, the most used multi-platform game engine to date. So it makes perfect sense that Unity would be the choice for future MR games too, right?

Absolutely, according to VRFocus. Microsoft Principal group manager Brandon Bray announced at the Vision Summit being held this week that 91% of HoloLens apps are being created through Unity engine. Because of this, Unity will be adding in native support for mixed reality.

Currently, a timeline hasn’t been released quite yet. The native support should be heading to Unity later this year to take advantage of the new Acer MR headsets launch.
