Founded in 2012 in London, UK, Improbable is a company dedicated to building technology to enable powerful virtual worlds and simulations designed to help solve previously intractable problems. In gaming and entertainment, this enables the creation of richer, more immersive and persistent virtual worlds. In May 2017 Improbable announced a $502m Series B funding round, led by SoftBank.
SpatialOS lets developers exceed the limits of a single server or game engine using standard tools and game engines. It allows for a swarm of hundreds of game engines, running in the cloud, to cooperate to simulate a world much larger, richer, and with more players than any single engine or server could. SpatialOS is currently in a free open beta for game developers – any developer interested in exploring how they can use SpatialOS to create new realities can download the SDK at https://improbable.io/games.
