The manufacturer has released the multiplatform engine Unity official apology regarding the recent Unity Runtime Fee Commission announcement, which was met with hostility from game developers.
We would like to remind you that from January 1, 2024, Unity will charge developers a fee for each installation of the game by users after a certain threshold is exceeded.
The reaction to the new policy was extremely negative – developers heavily criticized Unity, 19 studios sent an open letter to the company and turned off monetization in their games in protest.
Almost a week after the initial announcement, Unity released a short statement: “We heard you. We apologize for the confusion and concern caused by our Unity term fee announcement on Tuesday.”.
“We are listening, we are talking to our team, our community, our consumers and our partners and we will make policy changes. We will tell you more in a few days.says Unity.
Comments on the Unity announcement are full of skepticism, calls for a complete abolition of the commission and criticism of the new appointment. spoke outincluding Trent Kusters, co-founder of the League of Geeks studio.
“There was no ‘confusion’, Unity. In fact, the opposite is worrying. That the anti-development, destructive consequences of your new business model have become far clearer to all of us than you were able (or willing) to do before its introduction.”Custers said.
