Frontier was founded in 1994 by David Braben, co-author of the seminal Elite game. The Group has 243 full-time employees and operations in Cambridge, UK and Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Frontier has a proven track record of software technology development and innovation spanning several decades of rapid technological change.  Frontier has leveraged its technology to develop innovative videogames across a wide variety of different game genres and platforms, and has established relationships with globally renowned partners.

 

About Cobra

 

Frontier's Cobra software technology has been developed and evolved since 1988.  Initially conceived as a solution for the problem of easily porting the same game across different target hardware devices, Cobra today supports multi-core CPU and GPU architectures of PC, console, tablet and smartphone with a modular, high performance system offering of state of the art efficiency and visual fidelity that is applicable across a wide range of game genres.

 

Cobra incorporates a framework which enables rapid development of powerful game creation tools, which offer the ability to view, tweak and review changes to content (e.g. animations, audio, 3D models etc.) on target platforms in a live game session running on that platform, without the intervention of a programmer.
