Japanese game and tech company Silicon Studios Corporation is getting ready to release its open-source C# game engine called Xenko this April. You can get a look at the engine by downloading the free beta version available via the Xenko website. You can also study the source code.
Silicon Studios, the company known as the developer of the Bravely Default 3DS games, will launch its first commercial game engine that can be used to make games for mobile, PC, console, and VR platforms.
The decision to move from middleware to a full game engine was actually a fairly easy one for us. We were in a position to address some of the complaints developers have about the other commercial game engines on the market, and from there we began to see what developers of the future will need to be successful, including VR and mobile support.

Silicon Studios is going to charge for the engine after its release. No release date or pricing details are available as of this moment. We’re sure the company will share more during this year’s GDC.
