Microsoft Purchases the Havok Engine

GameInformer reported Microsoft completed its aqcuisition of  animation and physics engine, Havok.

The Havok engine has been used in over 600 games to date, most recently in Destiny and Dragon Age: Inquisition. While many fans of the engine are wary the PC powerhouse will use the engine exclusively with Microsoft titles, it would behoove the company to continue to license the software to developers on all platforms.

Microsoft is planning to bring the engine to the cloud, as the toolset will complement DirectX12, Visual Studio, and Azure cloud services.
