Unity acquires UK-based Engine Room Games

"At the minute they're working on expanding Unity support for PlayStation VR"

Unity has acquired Bristol based Engine Room Games to focus on Unity PlayStation development. The two companies have been working together for some time, but this deal makes the relationship official.

"Since early 2013, Engine Room Games have contracted with Unity, but we've recently been fortunate enough to be able to persuade the team to join us on a permanent basis. This makes us happy, because it means that the future of Unity PlayStation development is in very good hands," said a Unity statement.

"The Engine Room Games team will also contribute to other areas of Unity development including particles and general optimization. At the minute they're working on expanding Unity support for PlayStation VR, including 3D audio and Social Screen."

Engine Room Games was founded in 2008 and its directors are Tim Cannell, Paul Dunning and Alex McLean. It has two offices, one near Bristol and one just outside Stratford-Upon-Avon.
