Havok announces partnership with Unity

Havok and Unity partnership

Today we announced a partnership with Unity that gives us an opportunity to integrate our physics solution into the Unity ecosystem. At Unity’s keynote today Oliver Strunk presented the collaboration with Unity’s CTO, Joachim Ante (see here). 

Havok is already the industry-leading physics engine that powers over half of the top titles in this console generation, but our mission is to put Havok technology into the hands of as many developers as possible. This partnership gives us a unique opportunity to not only collaborate with Unity from an engineering perspective but also to gain valuable feedback from the diverse expertise of their community.
