4% of all Unity workforce have been let go by the company.
Unity, the developer of the widely used Unity engine, has laid off hundreds of its employees all around the globe. According to the company's official statement, around 200 people, or roughly 4% of all Unity workforce, have been fired, primarily from the company's AI and engineering departments, although some Unity workers report that as many as 400 people have been let go. The statement also reads that the laid-off workers will get two weeks of pay for every year worked and three months of COBRA health coverage.
"As part of a continued planning process where we regularly assess our resourcing levels against our company priorities, we decided to realign some of our resources to better drive focus and support our long-term growth," commented Unity in a statement. "This resulted in some hard decisions that impacted approximately 4% of all Unity workforce. We are grateful for the contributions of those leaving Unity and we are supporting them through this difficult transition."
