Unity Technologies has come a long way since 2005, offering game developers a very user-friendly and high-end suite of tools to design just about any kind of game for any platform. Unity sent out word today that the Unity Engine has been attached to more than one million registered developers around the world.
According to the press release, the company had more than 250,000 registered developers by 2010 and in 2011 that number increased three fold to 750,000. Now, in 2012, Unity Technologies caters to nearly 2% of all the world's 16 million software developers.
David Helgason, CEO of Unity Technologies commented in the press release, saying...
"When we released Unity 1.0 back in 2005, we didn't even dream numbers like that, but simply started by trying to be a great tool for the few hundred customers who adopted Unity," ... "That goal remains the same, as we now use our incredible momentum to improve our products and extend our reach. We are only just getting started!"
The Unity Web Player has also seen exponential growth since its inception, with more than 125 million installs to date and a growth rate of five million installs per month. Just recently GameSpy released their API for the Unity Engine and shortly before that xaitment released an easy-to-use AI plug-in solution for the Unity Engine as well.
