    I have some questions about console release. Console release requires pro license for each year.
    If I buy a license, and then I release the game, but I stop buying the next year, can I still sell the game that I already released?
    And btw, what is the advantage of using unity for console release?

    Yes, however you won't be able to update your game, which can be a problem if the console ends up requiring something to be changed.

    Compatibility with lots of hardware and better performance out of the box than Unreal Engine, especially on platforms like the Nintendo Switch.

    However, there is another wrinkle now. If you release a game and sell 100,000+ copies and make more than $200,000 in a 12 month period, you will end up incurring fees if you aren't using Pro at the time.
