Microsoft Acquires Popular Physics Middleware Developer Havok

on October 2, 2015 1:23 PM

If you play games, you’re probably familiar with Havok, at least because the logo of the popular physics middleware appears on the splash screen of a large percentage of the games released nowadays.

Today Microsoft announced that it has acquired the company from its previous owner Intel.

That said, Microsoft doesn’t seem to have any intention to limit the middleware to its own platforms, as the house of Xbox and Windows also announced that it will continue to offer the tools to the partners that want to make use of it.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
