Intel-owned middleware provider Havok has announced the impending acquisition of longtime partner Trinigy.
The privately-owned Trinigy is the creator of popular 3D engine The Vision Engine, which has been used by publishers that include Ubisoft, Take-Two and Dreamcatcher, among others.
The acquisition will expand Havok's portfolio of development tools, and will give the company a larger global reach.
"This acquisition will extend the reach of both companies' technologies across new geographies and market segments," said Havok managing director David Coghlan. "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 mid-August, at which point Havok will begin integrating the two companies' development teams. The Trinigy Vision Engine will be re-branded as the Havok Vision Engine.
Havok also recently announced
that it is expanding its business to include support for military simulations.
