Following the announcement of increased costs for game creators, Unity has faced criticism. In this manner, the corporation is attempting to salvage its finances, but regrettably, more layoffs are imminent.
In its most recent financial report, Unity disclosed that it is preparing for a fourth round of layoffs in as many months. Around 1,100 Unity workers at the time.
Due to the severity of the issue, the corporation anticipates closing many locations and divisions and discontinuing certain product lines. Even if the company’s sales increased by 69% in the third quarter of 2023 compared to the same period last year, it still shows losses of precisely USD 125 million.
CEO John Riccitiello recently announced his departure from Unity, blaming him for the regrettable choice to increase developer fees, which caused a stir among independent game developers and writers.
