Io Interactive head Thomas Jakobsen joins the company

Middleware vendor Havok is plotting future technology at a new R&D studio in Denmark, the company has said.

Havok’s Copenhagen office will be led by a new hire for the company – former Io Interactive research head Thomas Jakobsen.

"Our Copenhagen office joins a family of now six offices worldwide, and will be a key R&D hub for Havok, as we aggressively grow and evolve the company alongside the exciting and ever-changing games industry," said Havok managing director David Coghlan.

Havok has begun a recruitment dash for its new studio.
