SingleTrac Entertainment Technologies was a video game developer, mostly for the PlayStation platform. The management team and much of the original development team came from Evans & Sutherland, bringing their 3D graphics and software engineering skills into the video game industry.

Its most famous titles were the Twisted Metal and Jet Moto video game series. After producing these games for Sony Computer Entertainment, SingleTrac was bought by the video game publisher GT Interactive, which was then bought by the French company Infogrames.

The SingleTrac studio was closed down in 2000. A group of SingleTrac employees broke off and formed the game studio Incognito Entertainment in 1999, and that studio has gone on to make some additional entries in former SingeTrac franchises Twisted Metal and WarHawk for Sony Computer Entertainment.
