What is Unity LTS?
Unity 2019 LTS is now the latest Unity version with "Long Term Support."
🎮 The focus of the LTS version is stability and will continually receive bug fixes for the next two years.
🎮 Using LTS can help bring long term stability to your game and your development process.
🎮 2019 LTS has the benefit of supporting the Scriptable Render Pipeline, Shader Graph, Nested Prefabs, and much more. Features that 2018 LTS does not support.
➡️ It's common for minor version updates to introduce new bugs with new features.
➡️ The specific version for 2019 is 2019.4.x LTS.
➡️ Early versions for 2019.1x, 2019.2x, and 2019.3x have issues and aren't recommended to launch new games on.
❗️ Constantly upgrading your Unity minor version is a huge headache and can lead to many issues.
❗️ LTS helps us avoid upgrade pains. Although LTS will continually release new hot-fix versions, these are restricted to bug fixes and are much more low risk than typical Unity upgrades.
❗️ Android developers should take notice of LTS since their game will run on many different devices. Android bug fixes can be found in almost every Unity update.
⭐️ Unity 2020 is just around the corner and promises many new toys and "game-changing" features.
⭐️ What is not talked about is Stability. New features and major changes always introduce runtime and Editor issues.
⭐️ After many years with Unity, I highly recommend waiting on the latest releases and jumping onto Unity 2019 LTS to benefit your games and your game development sanity.
