Updated Unity Enterprise rates per workstation:
- Unity Pro: $2040 per year or $185 per month (previously it was $1800 and $150);
- Unity Enterprise: $3000 per year (before the $2400 increase);
- Unity Industrial Collection (UIC): $2950 per year (previously $2520).
Subscription prices will change for both new and current customers who have subscribed to Unity Pro, Unity Enterprise or Unity Industrial Collection (UIC) with monthly or annual fees.
"The new price reflects the value of our products today. In addition, we have not raised the price for three years. We have also expanded our investment in research and development (R&D) resources by 172%. The largest share of this is accounted for by Unity Editor. This has enabled us to significantly improve workflows, rendering algorithms and platform support in Unity 2021 LTS," Unity explained the need to change enterprise subscription rates.

Unity cut more than 200 developers, or 4% of its entire workforce, in June due to financial problems. The company imposed a restriction on hiring new employees across all departments.
Also in June, real-time PC game and graphics development platform Unity announced that it was shutting down its popular Q&A service Unity Answers. The education portal was largely developed and supported by users, and had been part of Unity's official developer forum since October 2009.
In February 2021, Unity closed Unity Connect, a network for connecting users and developers with different levels of experience, due to a significant decrease in activity.
Unity then closed the Unity Live Help service. It has been unavailable since June 1, 2022
