Senior Rendering Engineer & Graphics
Hangar 13, headed by Hayden Blackman, is a new member of the 2K family of game development studios focused on rich open world games. Mafia III is our first intensely challenging and rewarding effort. Responsibilities require complete ownership over development efforts taken including design, implementation, performance optimization, and platform finalization(PC, PS4). My primary tasks included implementation of temporal anti-aliasing, resolving artifacts, and getting the technology release ready. Other efforts have been focused on water surfaces, reflection optimizations, overall CPU and GPU feature and pipeline optimizations for the rendering threads on PC and PS4.
