Unity Technologies, the developer of the famous Unity 3D graphics engine (not to be confused with Unity Shell), has made a curious acquisition. Have bought from the Spanish company Códice Software. However, no details have been known about the amount of this acquisition, so it is not possible to speak of figures as in other cases. It has emerged that the talks had begun months ago to reach an agreement between the two companies.
What we do know is that the purchase will not imply changes for Unity products or for the famous Plastic SCM for which the company Códice Software is known. In case you did not know it, it is a software created in Valladolid and that is used as version control (VCS), as an alternative to Git.
This acquisition will allow Unity that large teams of developers can take advantage of the power of this VCS platform natively to continue improving its Unity 3D graphics engine for future video games based on it. Also Plastic SCM itself will grow alongside Unity, so it would be a mutually beneficial deal.
By the way, Unity Technologies already had a similar platform called Collaborate, but there will be no changes in it either. As reported by the company founded in Denmark (and based in Silicon Valley), they will also continue to support him. But it was designed to manage small teams, and now Plastic SCM will be able to allow the coordinated work of larger teams to achieve more complex projects.
La SARS-CoV-2 pandemicOf course, he was also partly to blame. Many companies are changing the way you work. And now more than ever, teleworking has increased. For this reason, many more teams work remotely, so Plastic SCM from Códice Software will give better opportunities in this case.
