Found the terms allowing Unity to change/revoke the contract. The ToS was changed in October 2022 to include the following:
>23.2 Changes to Terms
>To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, Unity reserves the right from time to time to (and you acknowledge that Unity may) modify these Terms (including, for the avoidance of doubt, the Additional Terms) without prior notice. If we modify these Terms, we will post the modification on the Site or otherwise provide you with notice of the modification. We will also update the “Last updated” date at the top of these Terms. By continuing to access or use the Offerings after we have provided you with notice of a modification, you agree to be bound by the modified Terms. If the modified Terms are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to cease using the Services.
>Notwithstanding this section, if the Additional Terms, Commercial Terms, Offering Identification, Documentation or Policies include different terms or procedures related to modification of those policies and terms, modification may, at Unity’s option, be handled as described in those policies and terms.
>You acknowledge that your commitments with respect to the Offerings are not contingent on delivery of future features or functionality (or oral or written statements about future features or functionality).
>22.4 Effect of Termination of Terms
>Upon any termination of these Terms for any reason, (a) your account and your subscriptions and other Offerings, including those of your Authorized Users, and all rights granted to you under these Terms will immediately terminate, and (b) the effects described above with respect to expiration or termination of a subscription or other Offering will apply to all subscriptions and other Offerings. Your payment obligations, your responsibility for anyone who has obtains, accesses or uses Offerings through you or your account, and the following sections of these Terms will survive termination for any reason: User Content (Section 6), Data (Section 7), Unity Materials (Section 12.3), Use of Third-Party Materials and Services (Section 12.4), Third Party Software (Section 12.5) Use of User Content (Section 12.6), Collaboration and Sharing of User Content (Section 12.7), Feedback (Section 15), Limitations on Use (Section 16), Confidentiality (Section 17), Unity Proprietary Rights (Section 19), Disclaimers, Limitations on Liability (Section 20), Indemnity (Section 21), Effect of Termination of Terms (Section 22.4), Miscellaneous (Section 23), Country-Specific Terms (Section 24) and Definitions (Section 25).
Will it fly in court? Who knows, but at least indie devs can't afford to take that risk. Apparently Unity isn't backing down, so this seems to be the end of Unity.
