There have been several minor stories in the world of game development. Too small to be covered on their own, but significant enough to be covered in this summary.
This week’s game development announcements include:
Xenko Game Engine Now Called Stride
The Xenko open source game engine has just been renamed to Stride. This was due to Trademark issues with previous Xenko owners Silicon Studios. In addition to the Stride rename, we have been told to expect Xenko… er, Stride 4.0 shortly. You can learn more about Xenko/Stride here.
Corona Game Engine Now Called Solar2D
Another open source game engine, Corona from Corona Labs, has just been renamed to Solar2D. This name change is for obvious and unfortunate reasons. Additionally, they announced progress on their migration to a completely open source project. Learn more about the open sourcing of Corona/Solar2D here.
