Intel to Acquire Havok
6:00 AM | Evan Holt | Comment on this story
According to Engadget, Intel is acquiring Havok, an in-game physics company.
Renee J. James, vice president and general manager of Intel's Software and Solutions Group said:
"Havok is a proven leader in physics technology for gaming and digital content, and will become a key element of Intel's visual computing and graphics efforts"Currently, Havoc is used in well over 150 PC games such as BioShock, Halo 2 and Half Life 2. Last September Blizzard licensed Havoc for use in their upcoming games. Companies such as Aspyr and MacSoft have refused to license Havok when porting PC games because the licensing fees are in the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Hopefully this move is a step in the direction of finally making Havok a feasible and affordable physics platform on the Mac.
