GenCore started in 2012 as a free not open-sourced project called "Premium Surgeon", it was unstable and didn't have much support, it only supported the Windows operating system, after that, in Q2 of 2013, GenCore was released as open-sourced and supported Windows, Linux and MacOSx(Unofficially).

GenCore was created using the QT toolkit, to be cross-platform, and is licensed under the GNU LGPL license.
GenCore will always be free and open-source and no single feature will cost a cent, since the main goal is to make GenCore the best free open-source AntiVirus.
