I have been waiting for a long long time to post Unity on Windows Phone news. It didn’t happen in 7.0 or 7.5 but finally – WP8 scores a winner here. At Unite 2012 today, taking place in Amsterdam, Unity CEO David Helgason announced support for Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8. Game developers absolutely adore Unity.
From Edge – Online:
Helgason also revealed that 53 per cent of mobile game developers have published games using Unity, demonstrating its extensive reach.
It is a big news. Windows Phone 8 users can expect some amazing games in the near future thanks to Unity support.
In case you don’t have an idea about the extent of usefulness of Unity support – let’s just say XNA developers who were depressed post lack of XNA support on WinRT will jump in joy because now they can make games in C# and avoid C++ (I am not a big fan!) or avoid taking the route of mono game route which works just fine.
Developers, are you excited about Unity support? Let us know in the comments below!
