OPPO and Heroic Labs have become the latest members of the Open 3D Foundation.
Established in July 2021, the Open 3D Foundation (O3DF) is an umbrella open-source organization under the Linux Foundation that will house multiple open-source projects and pool resources among the member community to sustain these projects. O3DF’s goal is to make an open-source, fully-featured, high-fidelity, real-time 3D engine for building games and simulations, available to every industry.
Currently there are over two dozen members (Premier, General, and Associate) and include Microsoft, Epic Games, and others. With the rise of mobile gaming, OPPO and Heroic Labs have just joined Premier and General members, respectively. They will work with the community to optimize the open-source Open 3D Engine project for mobile gaming. The O3DE is the foundation’s first project, a multi-platform 3D engine originated by AWS and planned as a fully open-source successor to Amazon Lumberyard.
OPPO is a global technology company focused on delivering consumer devices, notably mobile phones, and advocating for advancing cloud-native technologies. Heroic Labs is a creator of scalable, social infrastructure for cloud services and app server development. In joining O3DF, OPPO and Heroic Labs will collaborate with other O3DF members to accelerate standardization of 3D graphics development across a diversity of mobile platforms. This collaboration will happen inside a newly proposed O3DE (Open 3D Engine) Mobile Device Working Group, through which the O3DE community aims to build portable libraries and interfaces that can be used across a myriad of environments, freely available under the Apache 2.0/MIT license model.
