About the author

Tomas Akenine-Möller is a professor in computer science with specialization in computer graphics and image processing at the Department of Computer Science, Lund University, Sweden. Over the past years, I've built my own computer graphics group, LUGG (Lund University Graphics Group).

Eric Haines currently works at NVIDIA on interactive ray tracing. He cofounded the Journal of Graphics Tools and the Journal of Computer Graphics Techniques. He is also the creator and lecturer for the Udacity MOOC Interactive 3D Graphics.

Naty Hoffman is currently Principal Engineer & Architect at Lucasfilm's Advanced Development Group. Previously he was Vice President of Technology at 2K. Prior to that he was employed at Activision (working on graphics R&D for various titles, including the Call of Duty series), SCEA Santa Monica Studio (coding graphics technology for God of War III), Naughty Dog (developing PS3 first-party libraries), Westwood Studios (leading graphics development on Earth and Beyond) and Intel (driving Pentium pipeline modifications and assisting the SSE / SSE2 instruction set definition).

Angelo Pesce currently serves as a Technical Director for Activision Central Technology where he helps the Call of Duty studios with rendering R&D. His interest in Computer Graphics started in his teens by joining the demoscene community. In the past he has worked on rendering solutions for companies such as Milestone, Electronic Arts, Capcom and Relic Entertainment.

Sebastien Hillaire is a senior rendering engineer pushing visual quality, performance and workflows within the Frostbite team at Electronic Arts. He obtained his PhD in Computer Science from the French National Institute of Applied Science in 2010, during which he focused on using gaze tracking to enhance virtual reality user experiences.

Michał Iwanicki currently works as a Technical Director in Activision Central Technology group, where he focuses on graphics related research. He worked on rendering and engine code for games in The Witcher, The Last of Us, and the Call of Duty series

In this new and improved third edition of the highly popular Game Engine Architecture, Jason Gregory draws on his nearly two decades of experience at Midway, Electronic Arts and Naughty Dog to present both the theory and practice of game engine software development. In this book, the broad range of technologies and techniques used by AAA game studios are each explained in detail, and their roles within a real industrial-strength game engine are illustrated.

New to the Third Edition

This third edition offers the same comprehensive coverage of game engine architecture provided by previous editions, along with updated coverage of:

computer and CPU hardware and memory caches,

compiler optimizations,

C++ language standardization,

the IEEE-754 floating-point representation,

2D user interfaces,

plus an entirely new chapter on hardware parallelism and concurrent programming.

This book is intended to serve as an introductory text, but it also offers the experienced game programmer a useful perspective on aspects of game development technology with which they may not have deep experience. As always, copious references and citations are provided in this edition, making it an excellent jumping off point for those who wish to dig deeper into any particular aspect of the game development process.

Key Features

Covers both the theory and practice of game engine software development Examples are grounded in specific technologies, but discussion extends beyond any particular engine or API. Includes all mathematical background needed. Comprehensive text for beginners and also has content for senior engineers.
