Microsoft announces they have bought the company that made the SyntaxTree plugin for Visual Studio development in Unity. In the announcement, Microsoft said:
Today, I’m pleased to announce that we are acquiring SyntaxTree, the developers of the UnityVS plugin for Visual Studio.
UnityVS enables Unity developers to take advantage of the productivity of Visual Studio to author, browse and debug the code for their Unity applications. Already today, dozens of the biggest names in game development rely on Visual Studio and the UnityVS plugin.
With this acquisition, we have the opportunity to integrate this support for Unity even more deeply into Visual Studio, and to continue to push forward Visual Studio’s support for game developers. Microsoft will also make the existing UnityVS plugin available for free on our download site shortly.
