It seems that the Unity engine is becoming quite popular. Unity Technologies, which is the company behind the development tools, has revealed that they have reached 750,000 registered developers and users. Last year, around this time, it was revealed that the user count was at 250,000 users. This is an increase of 500,000 users. A great increase in what seems to be a great game engine that is cost-effective (i.e. it is free for the basic model).
CEO David Helgason was ecstatic at the numbers in a statement he made,
“We’re amazed at how rapidly Unity continues to grow in popularity globallyThe continuing growth of the platform demonstrates that when provided with excellent tools, developers will embrace them in numbers that surpass anything anyone imagined.”
The Unity Web Player also saw an increase in installations. Last year, that number was 40 million. This year, it has doubled to more than 80 million. Unity is becoming a growing force in game technology and it seems that it is only going to get better for the company.
