Chukong Technologies, one of the top Chinese mobile gaming publishers and studios, has announced the upcoming launch of a developer suite for its popular open-source Cocos2D-X engine. Cocos2D-X, an extension of the original Cocos2D framework, is billed as the world’s most popular cross-platform game engine with over 400,000 developers that have accumulated a total of 2 billion downloads with their titles.

The English version of the new developer toolset is expected to arrive by the end of the month and will be Windows-only at first. CocosStudio includes an interface for editing scenes, GUIs and animation for the engine.

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

Coinciding with the news, Chukong has announced completion of a $50 million Series D round led by New Horizon Capital with a post-money valuation of $500 million. Earlier this month, the company, which is booking more than $12 million in monthly revenue, reorganized to consolidate its CocoaChina, Punchbox and Cocos2d-x brands under the Chukong name.
