    Online video games that use both the Unity game engine and the SpatialOS cloud platform are now at risk thanks to a recent change in Unity’s terms of service, according to SpatialOS developer Improbable.

    Unity reportedly changed its terms of service to specifically disallow services like SpatialOS from functioning with its game engine, Improbable said in a blog post on Thursday. That means all games using both platforms, whether they’re live or in-development, are now in breach of Unity’s license terms.

    “Worryingly, this change occurred during an open commercial negotiation with the company to find a way to do more together,” Improbable said. “In addition, Unity has revoked our ability to continue working with the engine for breaching the newly changed terms of service in an unspecified way. This will affect our ability to support games.”
