Microsoft has announced that they have acquired Havok from Intel, a game tool creator. For a long time now, Havok has provided developers with tools that would allow them to add realistic in-game physics models to their games.

“We believe that Havok is a fantastic addition to Microsoft’s existing tools and platform components for developers, including DirectX 12, Visual Studio and Microsoft Azure. Havok is an amazing technology supplier in the games industry and the leading real-time physics creator. We saw an opportunity to acquire Havok to deliver great experiences for our fans.

Microsoft said they’ll continue to license Havok to third-party partners. We hope this will mean we might see some pretty cool games coming to Windows, Windows Phone and Xbox.
