Unity Is Getting Stronger – Frostbite’s Senior Graphic Programmer Leaves DICE, Joins Unity

It appears that the fight between Unity 5 and all other game engines will get really interesting. Frostbite’s senior graphic programmer, Sébastien Lagarde, announced that he’s leaving DICE. Sébastien has been at DICE for two years and will join Unity as a Director of Rendering Research.

While this news does not mean that DICE faces troubles with Frostbite, it’s undoubtedly good news for competition.

A while back, Tiago Sousa left Crytek and CRYENGINE in order to join id Software and help with id Tech 6.

Frostbite 3 is currently considered one of the best game engines, so it will be interesting to see whether Unity 5 – with the help of Sébastien – will be able to challenge it.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
