    I'm a little confused.
    I have just received an email informing me that if I do not renew or upgrade my subscription, the splash screen can no longer be customized / switched off.

    Wasn't it mentioned last time that this should now also be included in the Personal plan?
    https://unity.com/pricing-updates
    I then compared the plans:

    and indeed, customizing the splash screen is not included in Personal.

    When exactly was this changed?

    Customising the splash screen on Unity personal will only be available for users of Unity 6 and onwards when it's released.

    Ah, that reassures me.
    Thank you very much for the quick reply.

    Just FYI, even with the requirement to keep the Unity logo, one can already do amazingly customized splash screens:

    Me too! I wonder if that functionality was added long long time ago but the more corporate oriented Unity decided to not advertise it much amymore to sell Pro xD

    Unity is going to remove the "Made with Unity" logo

    I'll keep it in my projects even if it is a option but I wish there is more options like "Made with Unity", "Powered by Unity", "Built with Unity". It will be easier to customize the splash screen with company logo and Unity logo together in one screen if default "Made with Unity" is removed.

    Unity knows we love Unity and we want to make it beautiful.

    Good afternoon, at the end of last year it was said that with the release of the new version (Unity 6), it will be possible to disable SplashScreen in the Personal plan. Today (May 6, 2024) I installed Unity 6 Preview and this button is active on my Personal plan! Let's thank the Unity team for keeping their promises!

    Unity 6 and Unity 6 Preview are different releases. I'm thinking this must have snuck through by mistake.

    You probably don't have sufficient evidence to believe that this feature was added by mistake in "preview", and will be removed in "Unity 6"

    Who said it will be removed?

    Unity's original promise was that they allow the removal of splash screen in Unity 6 release. They, for some reason, did it in preview. Was it planned or by mistake? Who knows, but it doesn't really matter either, it doesn't add any value either way.

    Don't think that's what they meant. The final version was officially anounced to have that feature so it won't be removed.

    Would say it's not unlikely that a preview version has that too on purpose however.

    Edit: I'm too late


    Yeah, but people yelled for it as we all know. Probably just so they can make it feel more like they did everything about the game on their own :D

    When I release I'll keep the screen too, albeit make it fancy:

    I feel like you're thinking of "Unity 6 Preview" in a manner similar to a beta or release candidate but it's just a normal tech release like we've had in the past. Removing the splash screen was supposed to come at the same time as the new runtime fee but the fee is tied to the LTS which is "Unity 6".

    The option to remove it is in the release notes though so who knows.
