I’m not sure I agree on this… AFAIK, Rare refer to their engine team as the Shared Technology Group. They also have advertised positions for STG Software Engineers.
R&D in next-gen magic at our place tends to be done separately, and then redesigned and refactored for inclusion in the engine once it’s sufficiently developed.[/quote:31c0bcda12]
