Microsoft Acquires Popular Physics Middleware Developer Havok

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.

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.
