Havok to acquire Trinigy

9 Aug 2011

Irish middleware company Havok has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire 3D game engine provider Trinigy.

A range of games and simulation companies have used Trinigy’s Vision Game Engine, which is available on all major platforms.

With the addition of the Vision Engine, Havok’s modular technology portfolio now expands to include a full line of production tools, including rendering capabilities.

The integration of Havok technologies with the Vision Engine will provide a powerful and customisable platform that will enable teams to deliver compelling content and experiences across multiple devices and operating systems.

“We are delighted to acquire this highly experienced, proven team.” said 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.”

Havok and Trinigy have been partners for a number of years and both companies share similar philosophies about how technology should be built and delivered to customers, said Trinigy general manager Felix Roeken.

The transaction is expected to close by mid-August. Once completed, Havok will integrate the two companies’ development teams, operations and customer support organisations.

The Trinigy Vision Engine will be re-branded and known as the Havok Vision Engine.
