Unity fee debacle continues as company apologizes for “confusion and angst”

Robert Collins

Unity Technologies has officially apologized for “confusion and angst” caused among game developers for last week’s announcement of new fees that will be incurred when Unity-made games are downloaded.

Unsurprisingly, the decision drew a wave of backlash from the community. In the response from Unity’s official X (Twitter) account:

At this time the nature of these forthcoming “changes” has not been specified. It certainly does not sound like a reversal of the new fee policy—something which was not lost on many as seen in the post’s replies. As one prominent game developer—Rami Ismail of Ridiculous Fishing fame—said: “This is a trust issue.”

What changes Unity ultimately decides to make should be known in the coming days.
