Unity Abruptly Shutters Offices Following Threats Over Restructuring Fees
Unity Technologies, a popular game engine platform, announced last week that they would be closing their 17 offices due to recent threats over restructuring fees. The company has seen reduced staff and budget throughout the past year, making their recent actions to protect their employees a necessary precaution.
Unity has become the leading platform for games, media, and technologies over the last decade, and the closure of their offices is an alarming reaction to the current situation. The restructuring fees, which were viewed as unlawful and considered unfair to the company, likely led to the threats that were made.
In response to the threats, Unity moved quickly to secure the safety of their employees. All employees were told to stay home and employees from offices outside the U.S. were told to leave their locations immediately. Unity also hired security personnel to ensure the safety of their offices.
Despite the security measures, the abrupt closure of the offices has left many employees confused and frustrated with Unity. Employees have expressed their concern and disappointment regarding the lack of communication from Unity during the closure. While the company was in the process of restructuring and facing threats of violence, employees were completely unaware of the reasons behind the closure.
Unity has yet to issue a statement regarding the abrupt closure of the offices, and the future of their company is still uncertain. The abrupt closure of the offices, as well as the lack of communication from the company, have left many employees feeling uncertain and concerned about the future.
