Whether you’re an established enterprise studio or building your first project on UE4, Backtrace will ensure your project is supported through every stage of development—from testing, production, or release—with end-to-end error analysis and crash management.

Our plugin simplifies the integration so you can quickly capture and analyze crash reports to speed production cycles and increase player retention rates.
