Dassault Systemes' 3DVIA Virtools environment for game development and rapid prototyping now supports Xbox 360, the company has announced.
The update brings 3DVIA Virtools 5's supported platform count to five, counting PC, Xbox 360, Wii, Mac, and web. Virtools features the ability to publish the same game code to any platform it supports, without necessary modification.
"Our 3DVIA Virtools 5 beta testers were very pleased with the addition of Xbox 360 support, both for casual retail games and Xbox Live Arcade titles," said 3DVIA electronic entertainment VP Virgile Delporte.
"The ability to 'create once, publish to many' enables developers to show a working game on the target platform in record time and saves development teams hours of code rewrites and frustration at the most critical time in the development schedule -- just before a release."
The company plans to demonstrate Virtools 5 during next week's Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
