Unity has confirmed that it will support both Windows Phone 8 and Windows 8 in the immediate future.

Speaking at the Unite 2012 conference in Amsterdam, the game engine vendor said it is "working hard" to ensure that both platforms will receive support during Unity 4's release cycle.

"The Unity community has been asking for access to Windows Phones and have been eagerly anticipating the release of Windows 8," Unity Technologies CEO David Helgason said.

"We're happy to announce that we will support both."

According to Helgason's figures, 53 per cent of mobile developers have made use of the Unity engine, with 300,000 of them active on a monthly basis.

"The number of high-quality Unity-authored games for the PC, Xbox, and mobile devices already created is staggering and we're looking forward to seeing these products appear in the Windows Store and the Windows Phone Marketplace," senior director of Windows app marketing at Microsoft John Richards said.
