Unity Surpasses 750,000 Registered Developers

Unity Surpasses 750,000 Registered Developers

November 29, 2011 | By Frank Cifaldi

3D game development platform Unity recently surpassed a 750,000 registered users milestone.

According to Unity Technologies, some 200,000 of those registered users -- or 26 percent -- are active on a monthly basis.

A majority of those registrations (500,000) came within the last year, following the launch of major initiatives that include the popular Asset Store and the Union initiative, which eases cross-platform integration.

"We're amazed at how rapidly Unity continues to grow in popularity globally," said Unity Technologies CEO David Helgason in a statement. "The continuing growth of the platform demonstrates that when provided with excellent tools, developers will embrace them in numbers that surpass anything anyone imagined."

Installation of the Unity Web Player also saw growth during the period: the 80 million installations the company reported is double the 40 million it claimed a year ago.

The Unity suite contains both an editor and a game engine for creating 3D games on consoles, PCs, and many mobile and tablet devices.

According to Helgason, Windows Phone 7 will not see support, due to it being "a relatively closed system."
