Unity Technologies has announced its Unity platform for 3D on the web, iOS, Android and consoles has surpassed 750,000 registered developers, and that over 200,000 users remain active on a monthly basis. The number of Unity Web Player installs has also doubled over the last year, with 40 million as of November of 2010 and at present, over 80 million.
“We’re amazed at how rapidly Unity continues to grow in popularity globally,” said David Helgason, CEO of Unity Technologies in the press release. “The continuing growth of the platform demonstrates that when provided with excellent tools, developers will embrace them in numbers that surpass anything anyone imagined.”
This announcement comes amid the one year anniversary of the Unity digital Asset Store and Union distribution service.

In the opening month, the top vendors were grossing $2,500 a month and at present, more than $10,000 a month.
