Question: When did Unity come out?


Unity, the cross-platform game engine developed by Unity Technologies, was first released on June 6, 2005. It was initially revealed and launched at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference as a Mac OS X-exclusive game engine. Since then, Unity has evolved to support more than 25 platforms including Windows, Linux, and various gaming consoles.

The widespread adoption of Unity is due to its ease of use, powerful features, and flexibility that caters to both indie developers and large studios. Unity provides a comprehensive set of tools for content creation, including animation, physics, and networking, coupled with a user-friendly editor.

Throughout the years, Unity Technologies has consistently updated the engine, bringing new features and improvements to support the latest technology in gaming and interactive media. These updates are categorized by version numbers; major versions include Unity 4, Unity 5, Unity 2017, Unity 2018, Unity 2019, and Unity 2020.
