So far these are the most used engine to develop the games. These two-game developing engines are the most famous on the market right now having advantages on both of them respectively. They are capable to develop “AAA” title games and due to their heavy task performing capability, many companies might struggle to select between the two. Both of the platforms are packed with high-class techniques and equipment. The algorithm used here in both of them is quite impressive that’s where the competition begins to select between the two.

To select between the two the company initially needs to confirm what type of games they want to develop. This will help them to determine the perfect platform.

Unreal was released in 1998 by epic games and they became famous due to their intense graphics in their “AAA” title games department. It also competes with unity in terms of pricing as any small developer can afford an unreal engine to develop games. C++ is the programming language used in the developing platform. It is also known powerhouse because due to its power-packed graphics quality pushing it the limits and also on the other hand it maintains the efficiency. The introduction of the “Blueprints”, unreal makes a strong point for any developer to choose it and develop and desirable games.

Unity was founded in 2004 with its main aim to make it possible to afford by everyone who so ever is interested and not only by big companies. And so far they have done it. Due to its availability, it becomes so famous that most of those companies and small developers are using it to develop games. The C# language here is well properly documented which encourages the user to use it. With its available great community, no problem remains unsolved.


This is where unity 3D losses to the Unreal engine. It can create starting from any complex simulations system to any fabulous lighting effects unreal got the back of any developer. It is capable to create any 2D or 3D visual style. With the unity 3D version around the corner, they are giving themselves an outside chance to compete Unreal.


This is where the most company focuses to grab customers.

Unreal Engine: iOS, Android, VR, Linux, Windows PC, Mac OS X, SteamOS, HTML5, Xbox One, and PS4.

Looks like Unity remains the best choice who so ever want to target massive customer.

Both of the platforms are great and it depends on the user and their usages. Each of them is perfect for their position by having both advantages and disadvantages.
