Noting that this comes as competitor Epic Games is embroiled in a legal battle
has details on how Unity Engine maker Unity Software has
filed for an IPO
(thanks theAntiELVIS(!)). Word is: "Last year, Unity
reported a $163.2 million net loss on revenue of $541.8 million -- widening the
loss in 2018 of $131.6 million." Here's more:
Unity claims it is "the
world's leading platform for creating and operating, interactive real-time 3D
content," boasting that in 2019 it made more than half of the top games on
mobile, PC, and consoles — including 53% of the top 1,000 games in the iOS App
Store and Google Play, with three billion downloads per month.
In its filing, Unity boasted a global reach of more than two billion monthly
active users, with more than 8,000 games and applications developed on the
platform so far this year.
All those numbers could add up to one big challenge for Epic. The company's
controversy with Apple could stall Epic’s Unreal Engine. That could prove
advantageous to Unity’s rival engine.
