Unity and ironSource merge

Unity 3d

Unity Technologies, the company behind the Unity 3D game engine, which is widely used in the world of gaming, both for PC video games and for video games for mobile devices, has announced an unexpected merger. The merger of Unity Technologies will take place with a company called ironSource. This has been announced in a press release and has caught most of the developers who work with this platform and the users of video games that are based on it by surprise.

However, if you follow the trajectory of Unity Technologies in recent years, the truth is that it has been acquiring some other companies. The change is that now it talks about a merger and not an acquisition, which has left many people uncertain. Will this change anything in the software we know? Will everything stay the same? Will there be improvements?

The truth is that the press release with the statement does not reassure, because it was a big mess with endless technicalities and without making things too clear. Now everything is a bit up in the air, and whether this will in any way affect Unity's relationship with Linux in terms of support, or whether many should start thinking better of Godot Engine, the free and open source alternative. Although it is still too early to judge, we will see…

For those who are not familiar with ironSource, it is a company that has developed projects such as installCore, an installer with several applications at the most pure style adware and quite unpleasant. In fact, the company has had a bad reputation, and started to be blocked in Microsoft Windows. For this reason, the merger between the two companies becomes even more sinister, and makes one doubt what it could mean in Unity 3D.
