Management Unity officially apologized for the confusion and anxiety that news of her new business model caused. The company listened to the criticism and promised to make changes to the controversial policy. Updated information will be shared in the coming days.
Let us recall that the new Unity business model implied a commission for developers working on the engine for each installation of their projects (if certain conditions were reached). The policy changes were to take effect on January 1, 2024.
The news about the upcoming commission expectedly caused a wave of indignation and calls for a boycott from developers. At one point, Unity even had to close its offices due to death threats, which, as it turned out, were made by a local employee.
