    Well! Yet another outstanding report on Gaming Trends.
    I think this is a very fertile period for developers to engage into this growing industry.
    There is this one prospect that seems really intriguing to me… The Internet Of Things
    I see it as a game changer that can change fate of developers and companies behind them.
    There are two prime ways that IoT integration could help the industry; you might want to visit How Internet Of Things Will Transform Online Gaming

    Thanks and a Good Work, Unity!

      Sorry, for the broken Link, Here’s the right one —> http://igniteoutsourcing.com/publications/internet-of-things-mobile-gaming/

  2. Do you have some statistics about x86 devices? (and other architecture statistics)
    And what about windows phone? (is it “other”?)

  3. Provides a lot of data for developers developing for the global market, just a bit sad I didn’t see Canada there :(

  4. Is there any information about this subject in different languages?

    http://www.global-yurtdisiegitim.com

    1. We currently have Russian, Korean, Japanese and Simplified Chinese versions for this report. In the future, we might want to localize in many more different languages. :)

  5. I am very surprised at the number of Chinese Unity game installs. It this true for other game engines or just Unity?

    1. We derived our insights from 4.2 Billion installs from mobile games made with Unity. I guess it might be quite representative for the whole mobile gaming landscape. :)

  6. I dont like the fact that in the image above, Taiwan and China has the same color, which implies the two are the same country, which is not. ROC and PRC is not the same thing, if your statistic does not include Taiwan please just paint it white, thank you =]

  7. I love a good infographic. These stats are great, thanks Unity.

  8. This is really good content about Unity please update more stuff !!

    Genuinely very interesting, however your map blatantly has the Republic of Ireland(ROI) as part of the United Kingdom(UK). This is lazy and disrespectful. Please refrain from doing this in future. Ireland is not some insignificant region to be simply and lazily lumped in with another nation, it is an independent country that has contributed much to music, arts, film, sport and technology (given the size of population).

    Also the above is statistically unclear, when reporting UK numbers to these actually include ROI? Or is the map just wrong? I note that you do list Ireland as a separate country on you list of EU nations.

    Using regions is fine, i.e. UK & ROI or EU, but the world map above is not acceptable.

    1. Thanks for letting us know, Kieran. We apologize for this mistake/typo on the map. In fact, We at Unity respect every country, culture and community. Now, the map is updated and we will make sure it will not happen again. Also, just to be clear, the UK numbers shall only apply to UK. :)

        Hi Leon, many thanks, I really appreciate the quick correction and clarification on the stats. Hoping to release by first game via Unity this summer and the above information provides great insight

        1. You are very welcome, Kieran! Looking forward to your new game! Keep us posted. =)

  10. everytime i will download these reports i got no email with the link! why?

    1. Sorry to hear that, Kay. Would you please try the above link again? Otherwise, please contact us at Analytics@unity3d.com

  11. What does it mean 220k games made with Unity? Is that number of games released on Google Play and App store?

    1. It actually refers to all mobile games (e.g. Android, iOS, Windows phone platforms etc.) made with Unity.

  12. Very interesting! Could you please add Windows Store?

    1. I suspect that’s included in “Other”. As much as I would like to see WP succeed, it is nearly negligible in light of Android and iOS. Getting UWP installs for non-mobile gaming would be interesting data to see though.

      Unity, care to comment?
