The infographic comes weeks after Unity announced a merger deal with Israeli app business firm IronSource. 

Last month, the company announced that it laid off 4% of its team, nearly 150 employees, joining other tech giants that announced lay-offs or hiring freezes because of the economic slowdown, such as Google, Apple, Meta, Shopify, Twitter and many others.
