Platform to be used in developing content for Lego website

Lego licences Unity for browser gaming

Unity Technologies has secured a three-year deal with Lego Group, with its engine licensed to develop a number of online games on the firm’s website.

Unity CEO David Helgason said the deal was testament to the platform’s suitability for browser-based content creation.

“We’re very excited to be playing such a significant part of the Lego Group’s future web plans,” he said.

“We’re experiencing rapid growth of the Unity plugin, with around 1 million installs per month, and we anticipate that this will grow exponentially as Unity is adopted by more sites and consumers become more familiar with our brand."
