Unity announced today that it will stop selling Flash deployment licenses but will continue support for Flash customer for the rest of the current cycle.
The news was posted on the Unity blog, courtesy of Shack News, and states the decision is due to Adobe not being committed to future Flash development, saying “We don’t see Adobe being firmly committed to the future development of Flash. This is evidenced by the cancellation of Flash Player Next, the instability of recent Flash Player versions and by Adobe’s workforce moving on to work on other projects. By introducing, and then abandoning, a revenue sharing model, Adobe eroded developers’ (and our) trust in Flash as a dependable, continuously improving platform.”
Adding to that, Unity states that its own Unity Web Player has seen unprecedented growth in recent months, already installed on over 200M computers and by 1/3 of all Facebook gamers.
