Unity Tech has released some of their public roadmap details concerning what they hope to accomplish in the next calendar year. Some of the highlights for Unity goals in 2021 include:

- To little surprise, fully supporting next-generation game consoles, natively support Apple's Arm-based silicon coming to market, new AR/VR platforms, and the continued mobile architectures.

- Optimizing game engine performance is a never-ending task. Expect to see various performance optimizations out of Unity in 2021.

- Maturing of the Universal Render Pipeline and stabilizing the High Definition Render Pipeline are continued goals.

- Bolt visual scripting as a core feature.

- Improvements around multiplayer networking and even working more with the open-source software multiplayer community.
