Cursor.visible equals True, while the cursor is invisible when entering Game View after unfocusing it

Scene/Game View


Reproduction steps:
1. Open user's project "Cursor bug"
2. Open "SampleScene" Scene
3. Enter Play Mode and click anywhere in the Game View
4. Notice how the console is logging out "Cursor visible:False, lockState:Locked" and the cursor is invisible
5. Press Esc to unfocus from the Game View, notice how the cursor is visible and the console is logging out "Cursor visible:True, lockState:Locked"
6. Press anywhere in the Game View again

Expected result: Cursor is invisible and the console logs out "Cursor visible:False, lockState:Locked" when entering Game View again
Actual result: Cursor is invisible while the console logs out "Cursor visible:True, lockState:Locked" when entering Game View again

Reproducible with: 2018.4.35f1, 2019.4.27f1, 2020.3.11f1, 2021.1.9f1, 2021.2.0a18

    Resolution Note (2021.2.X):

    This behavior is by design. As stated in the Cursor.visible documentation, "Set [Cursor.visible] to true to reveal the cursor. Set it to false to hide the cursor. Note that in CursorLockMode.Locked mode, the cursor is invisible regardless of the value of this property."

    The user report requests "a more clear way to identify whether user pressed escape and gameview lost focus", this may be considered as a feature in the future.
