Transformational Deal Positions Unity as Leading End-to-End Platform for Developers to Build, Run, and Grow Mobile Games and Real-Time 3D Content
Unity announced that it has completed its merger with ironSource, becoming the industry’s leading end-to-end platform for mobile app creators. The transformational combination allows Unity to support developers through the entire development lifecycle as they build, run, and grow immersive, real-time games and 3D experiences into successful businesses. The company’s depth and breadth of tools and services are unmatched in the industry. The combined company is expected to be highly profitable and generate positive free cash flow.
“We’re happy to welcome ironSource to the Unity family and get a step closer to our goal of being the leading platform for a world with more creators in it,” said John Riccitiello, CEO of Unity. “Together, we offer a complete ecosystem for developers to successfully realize and achieve their goals – no matter where they are in the development cycle.”

Game developers will have access to more tools that bridge the gaps between creation and growth so they can deliver a better game experience. If they choose to monetize their games, they can also now use Unity’s best-in-class mediation platform LevelPlay to maximize their revenue.
“The driving force behind this industry-changing merger is to create more value for developers across the entire development journey,” said Tomer Bar-Zeev, CEO, ironSource. “We are very excited about the road ahead as we begin integrating our product portfolios more deeply and strengthening the feedback loop between creating great games and growing them into successful businesses. In doing so, we’ll be able to create a world where more creators are more successful than ever before.”
As previously announced, in connection with the closing of the transaction, Tomer Bar-Zeev, Shlomo Dovrat and David Kostman have joined the Unity Board of Directors, increasing the number of Board members from 10 to 13 members.
