This experience puts us in a unique position to apply these learnings as we explore the next generation of technologies, including mixed and augmented reality. With sales of VR headsets seemingly doubling every year and the rise of next-gen AR and MR upon us, we find ourselves firmly entrenched in an era where pioneers will help define what the next generation of games.
The company also announced its talent-focused acquisition of Zenz VR. Zenz employees will augment current Resolution projects (the acquisition did not include any current Zenz intellectual property). Some of the employees have already started working in the AR division of Resolution. The company also launched a US-based subsidiary in Austin, Texas called Resolution Games Inc.
