Unity Technologies has announced that is has over one million registered developers — a growth of 250,000 in just three months — with nearly 300,000 users active in the last month alone. Unity provides the Unity:3D engine, which is behind a number of games including Battlestar Galactica Online and Shadowgun. This boost in developer support is likely driven by the sheer number of platforms supported by the engine: as well as Windows, Mac, Android, iOS, and the current generation of home consoles, Unity users can also create games for Chrome's Native Development Kit and Flash.
"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," said David Helgason, CEO of Unity Technologies. The engine's reach has increased exponentially since then, and at its current rate of growth could reach two million by the end of the year.
