Codemasters, developer and publisher of award-winning video games, and Realtime Technology, a leading provider of 3D realtime rendering and visualization technologies and services for the automobile, aircraft and consumer goods industries, today announced a strategic partnership of technology and knowledge cooperation.
Under the partnership, Codemasters and RTT will share expertise in automobile modeling, rendering and realization projects, such as RTT DeltaGen and RealTrace tools that enable car designers to render CAD models in realtime, and Codemasters' EGO Game Technology Engine, which drives the critically acclaimed racing games COLIN MCRAE: DIRT and RACE DRIVER: GRID.
"Both companies share common goals, including a passion for technology excellence and attention to detail and quality", said Bryan Marshall, chief technical officer, Codemasters. "These goals are demonstrated equally in such executions as the beauty of realtime ray-traced light clusters in RTT's DeltaGen software and the mesmerizing race action and environmental detail in our own RACE DRIVER: GRID. Any collaboration with RTT that delivers advantageous results for our development pipeline will be immensely valuable."
