Hypertoric varieties are hyperkahler analogues of toric varieties related to symplectic resolutions, hyperplane arrangements, and geometric representation theory. We construct quantizations, depending on a parameter q, of multiplicative hypertoric varieties using an algebra of difference operators on affine space. Furthermore, when q is a root of unity, we show that the quantization acquires a large center and defines a matrix bundle (i.e. Azumaya algebra) over the multiplicative hypertoric variety.
