Polygon Immutable FAQs

Key Messaging & Partnership Background:

Immutable and Polygon Labs have entered into a strategic partnership for Immutable to build Immutable zkEVM, an EVM-compatible rollup solution optimized for gaming. This new relationship will transform the web3 gaming landscape and solidify a new home for gaming.

There are three problems blocking massive growth for the web3 gaming industry:

  1. There are not enough great games for players to play
  2. Difficult to build games with web3 technology
  3. Ecosystems are fragmented and, as a Developer, committing to a ecosystem comes at a high cost and is difficult to revert

The partnership and Immutable zkEVM is the solution:

  • Easier to build great games - Immutable zkEVM provides tools and resources that enable advanced gameplay - with custom smart contracts, rich economies, and on-chain functionality
  • Brings great games together - introduces the Immutable community to the Polygon ecosystem and gamers in the Polygon ecosystem to the Immutable platform. Together, games building on Immutable and Polygon have received close to $2B USD in investor funding in 2022.
  • Defragments the industry - no more stitching together disparate systems or spending months integrating multiple solutions. Focus on building the gameplay experience you need; leave the rest to Immutable and Immutable zkEVM.
