Backtrace for Gaming

The faster your team handles crashes and exceptions, the more time players can spend playing

“Before Backtrace, our QA team spent a lot of time deduping crashes, then classifying them as to which team they should go to–graphics crash, low level crash, etc.–before we could fix the issue.”

Capture Every Crash and Exception

Automated crash and exception capture from every client, console, engine, and server platform you run on. Backtrace generates structured, searchable error reports for you.

Unreal, Unity, Xbox, iOS, Android, Windows, Mac, Linux, C, C++, or C#—we have you covered.
