Acquisition of company responsible for Vision puts popular tools outfit firmly in the 3D engine space

Havok has once again expanded its remit - and this time it's staking a claim in the 3D engine space.

The firm responsible for the popular AI, physics and other middleware solutions has announced it is to buy Trinigy and its Vision Game Engine.

By buying the firm, Havok's suite of tools now extends into rendering capabilities.

Vision Engine will now go under the name of Havok Vision Engine.

The deal will be finalised mid-August, after which the two will set about integrating their development, operations and customer support teams.

"We are delighted to acquire this highly experienced, proven team.” said David Coghlan, MD of Havok.

“This acquisition will extend the reach of both companies’ technologies across new geographies and market segments. We are excited by the opportunities that the combination of Havok and Trinigy will bring as the industry continues to broaden in terms of target platforms, markets, budget sizes and distribution models.”

Felix Roeken, GM of Trinigy, added: “The team at Trinigy is very excited by the opportunity to join Havok.

“Havok and Trinigy have been partners for a number of years and both companies share very similar philosophies about how technology should be built and delivered to customers. We are confident that this acquisition will be very positive for Trinigy’s customers and employees.”
