Silicon Studio launches mobile and VR game engine Xenko after two years in beta

Silicon Studio has now launched the commercial version of its C# game engine Xenko.

The engine has been in open beta for the last two years, but has only just become available as a full commercial release. It allows for development on iOS and Android, as well as PC and Xbox One, with more platforms to come.

Xenko is available for free for personal use and by small studios provided they display a "Made With Xenko" splash page at the start of their games.

Go Pro

Companies earning over $200,000 must upgrade to Xenko Pro, which costs $75 a month per user. A Pro Plus subscription is available for $150 a month per user while a Custom package is available for larger studios.

Xenko Pro is currently available for free until July 31st to give developers a chance to test out its capabilities without having to pay upfront.

You can find out more about the engine on the official website.

More expensive than Unity, yet not even proven on devices in the real world, has a miniscule community, has practically no knowledge base...

Sounds like a huge gamble for any company to invest in this engine....
