This year at GDC 2016 Unity did not give any huge announcements. Most of the new stuff was just advancing the previous features of the engine, taking them to the next level. However, those advancements seemed to have really taken Unity 5 into an absolutely new level. It’s a huge improvement. The kind of games that Unity has in its portfolio just amazes us: Firewatch, Homeworld, P.A.M.E.L.A – these games are amazing. Plus the new Adam demo looks great. Here are some of the biggest highlights of the past event.

Unity made some announcements during its GDC Special Event. Unity launches two new versions, Unity collaborate feature and the Unity developer certification program.

We remain focused on democratizing development, solving hard problems and enabling success. I’m proud of the success that Unity has achieved in the last year. To achieve 30 percent share of the top 1000 grossing games is unprecedented and a testament to the creativity of developers using Unity. The two new versions we are launching today will provide something for all developer needs and set a more stable baseline for future innovation.

Unity Technologies have rightly spotted the gap in the market and have managed to address it with a suitable approach that solves many issues for evaluating Game Design and Development skills of individuals. This is especially useful for graduates, as they can officially demonstrate their skills to prospective employers. It also reduces the risk of employing developers and graduates as they can now support their CVs with an official evaluation. Finally, this approach also helps the Higher Education to align their focus with the industry standards.

Unity Technologies is also offering the Unity Certified Developer Courseware, an online learning program that directly maps to preparation for the certification exam. Courseware will be available for purchase online in Q2 2016. Initially, both the exam and courseware are offered in English, however, multiple languages are planned to ensure candidates across the globe have access to certification materials in their native language.

Democratizing development and enabling success are core principles at Unity, and creating a certification program is one of best ways to drive those ideas forward. We’ve developed a program based on learning science, that supports the way educators teach and students learn. This will help create a path to give students marketable, valuable skills, seeding the future workforce of the industry.
