Vancouver, B.C. - Havok, a provider of interactive software solutions for the games, entertainment, and simulation industries, has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Trinigy, a 3D game engine provider.
Trinigy's Vision Game Engine has been used by a broad range of games and simulation companies and is available on all major platforms. With the addition of the Vision Engine, Havok's modular technology portfolio expands to include a full line of production tools, including rendering capabilities.
"We are delighted to acquire this highly experienced, proven team," says David Coghlan, managing director 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."
The transaction is expected to close by mid-August and once completed, Havok will begin executing the planned integration of the two companies' development teams, operations, and customer support organizations to ensure both a smooth transition and immediate value for customers and partners. The Trinigy Vision Engine will be re-branded and known as the Havok Vision Engine.
