According to media reports, Unity Technologies CEO David Helgason announced today that the company’s game development tool Unity getting the universal application willget support from Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8.
Windows Phone 7 system has never been a game development platform, but the next generation Windows systems will support the Unity game development tool.
Helgason said the Unity does not support Windows Phone 7 before, because it is relatively closed, but he hopes that Windows 8 system can be improved in this respect.
The Unity license supports almost all the modern game platforms, including iOS, Android, Xbox 360, Wii and PS3. Many well-known games, such as “Shadowgun” is developed by the use of it.
Helgason said, 53% mobile developers take advantage of the Unity to develop games.
Although it is not guaranteed that developers will promote their games to the new version Windows system, at least in addition to Microsoft’s own XNA and Silverlight platforms, developers have a new option.
