Unity, makers of a development platform popular with many browser-based projects, have just announced that they have signed a multi-year agreement with Electronic Arts. The terms allow the video game publisher to use the Unity platform for multiple projects across its studios, extending the relationship between the companies established with such titles like the browser-based Tiger Woods PGA Tour Online.

“We have spent a lot of years looking at development assets of all kinds. Unity represents one of the deepest commitments we have ever made. It lets us produce products to our quality expectations, while freeing our creative contributors to explore new ideas, without breaking the bank,” said Richard Hilleman, EA’s VP Chief Creative Director. “Unity’s unparalleled platform support ensures that when we have something we want to share with our players, we can reach them quickly on the platforms they have. We look forward to continuing collaboration with our friends at Unity Technologies on future innovations and the new experiences we will create for our players.”

“We’re excited about and proud of our long term relationship with Electronic Arts. Unity’s ability to straddle from the highest-end productions to the littlest development teams is something we’re immensely proud of,” said David Helgason, CEO of Unity. “Our adoption is accelerating on all fronts, and the sky’s the limit.”
