Unity co-founder and chief technology officer Joachim Ante, has responded to recent reports suggesting that the cross-platform engine was courting potential buyers.
“The role we now have in the gaming industry has been noticed by other companies,” Ante wrote, in part. “And today we have partnerships and collaborations with many of them. And these partnerships have enabled us to make it even better for you guys. For example offering you access to even more platforms in Unity at no extra cost. Sometimes when we talk to our partners, discussions turn to talk of acquisition.”
“Our response has always been that for Unity it is best to be an independent company. This has been true for the last 10 years, it is equally true today.”
The reports, which began circling last month, put the asking price between $1 billion and $2 billion.
