Unity expands into South Korea

Unity Technologies, provider of the increasingly popular Unity game development platform, has announced plans to launch a subsidiary in South Korea. Led by country manager William Hugo Yang, a former analyst and consultant in the Korean gaming industry, Unity Korea will serve as a localisation and support centre for future Unity expansion in the country. Yang said: “As the Korean development community continues to grow, we will provide our expanding Korean user base fully localised tools and documentation, as well as dedicated technical support.” Unity CEO David Helgason added: “Our strong following in the Korean developer community tells us that Unity is the perfect solution for Korea’s dynamic games industry, which requires a cross platform solution enabling casual, MMORPG, mobile, PC and console games development on current and emerging platforms.” Earlier this month Unity secured $12 million in a Series B financing round, part of which the firm said would be used to help it push into the Asian market.
