Sony have announced [via] that the popular middleware platform Unity will support the PlayStation 4 later this year, along with Sony’s other hardware.
The latest version of the software, expected to be in a usable state “in a couple of months” will support the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, PS Mobile and Sony’s cloud gaming service.
“We’re hitting the ground running in the efforts to give you all more options to publish your awesome games,” said a spokesperson for Unity. “We’re looking to begin releasing these tools late this year, which means a beta lays somewhere in between.”
The middleware should, apparently, allow developers to port games between PS3, PS4 and PS Vita without too much additional effort.
Recent games built in Unity include Slender: The Eight Pages, Dead Trigger, the Vita’s Escape Plan and Shadowgun.
