Engine developer Unity Technologies is set to launch a new subsidiary in South Korea, which will serve as a localization and support center for future Unity expansion in the country.
Unity Korea will be based in Seoul, and provide Korean developers with support for its development platform that currently spans web games, iOS, Android and consoles.
The new division will be run by country manager William Hugo Yang, who has previously worked as a consultant and analyst in the Korean gaming industry.
Yang explained, "As the Korean development community continues to grow, we will provide our expanding Korean user base fully localized tools and documentation, as well as dedicated technical support."
Unity Technologies 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."
"The launch of our Korean subsidiary will allow us to better serve the passionate, talented Unity community in this dynamic market."
Earlier in the month, the company announced
that it had secured $12 million in a series B financing round, as a means of accelerating its plans to expand into Asian markets.
