Unity developers may soon have access to a huge new audience.


The announcement was made on Facebook’s page for developers by product marketing manager Jack King Choi.

Developers can sign up now on the page to request immediate access to a closed alpha, and will be able to port games built in Unity 5.4 + to the Facebook platform.

“Unity will integrate support for the Facebook platform, including an all-new PC gaming platform currently in development”, says Choi.

There is work being done to “build new functionality into Unity that streamlines the process for exporting and publishing games onto Facebook.”

Facebook cites 650 million players per month on their platform, meaning that this could lead to huge opportunities for developers.
