Amazon is contributing its Lumberyard game engine to open source, which will be known as the Open 3D Engine.
The Linux Foundation will oversee the project and set up the Open 3D Foundation to accelerate collaboration with game developers to improve the Triple-A game engine. This shift could bode well for future projects like an open metaverse, the universe of virtual worlds all interconnected, like in novels like Snow crash and Ready player one.
Celebrity game developers like Denis Dyack and his Apocalypse Studios are participating in the project, which has more than 20 founding members including Amazon Web Services, Adobe, Huawei, Niantic and Red Hat. The open source engine will enable developers to create royalty-free 3D games and simulations, giving game and application companies some edge over the commercial game engines from Unity Technologies.
