> The Runtime Fee policy will only apply beginning with the next LTS version of Unity shipping in 2024 and beyond. Your games that are currently shipped and the projects you are currently working on will not be included – unless you choose to upgrade them to this new version of Unity.

predicted NO

They've said they will rework the policy, how will this affect how this resolves?

@gooey If they walk the policy back, it resolves yes. Otherwise, no.

predicted YES

@KFP does changing the policy to make it less controversial count as walking it back or do they have to completely scrap it?

@LukeHanks I might not have worded the title very clearly (this is my first market) but yes, they have to completely scrap it.
