    This has been a chicken and egg problem for Windows ARM64 and game engines in general.
    With MS having full blown desktop support for ARM64 for years now Unity3D should be on the ball with this one. So should the Steam Store.

    We will be introducing support for native ARM64 Windows player in 2023.1. It should be available within the next few weeks in 2023.1 beta builds.

    Awesome!! Just got a Win11 2023 ARM64 dev kit / Project Volterra device (Also have the older Win10 LIVA one). Will be cool to try out Unity builds on them.

    Any info on if this will be Win10 & Win11 or just Win11?

    It should also support Win10 ARM64 as some devices on Win10 ARM64 can't updated or have update issues to Win11. Such as the "Samsung Galaxy Book Go" for example. There is a Win10 update for ARM64 that will bork any attempts to update to Win11. So I'm sure a huge number of them will stay on Win10.

    The player should work on Windows 10 too. The system requirements will be identical to UWP player.

    No, we have no plans to port Unity player to ARM64 on Linux at this time.

    Sad. I think it could be crucial for people trying to run stuff like interactive projectors etc
