Ego Game Technology Engine (more commonly referred to as Ego Engine or EGO, stylised ego) is a video game engine developed by Codemasters.

Ego is a modified version of the Neon game engine that was used in Colin McRae: Dirt and was developed by Codemasters and Sony Computer Entertainment using Sony Computer Entertainment's PhyreEngine cross-platform graphics engine.[1] The Ego engine was developed to render more detailed damage and physics as well as render large-scale environments.[2]
