Representatives from middleware firm Havok have announced a new round of funding for the company with leading contributions from Trinity Venture Capital, the Bank of Scotland and secured investment from a number of European financial institutions. According to Havok CEO David O’Meara, “This fund raising enables Havok to aggressively invest in the expansion of its product portfolio and to include acquisitions while maintaining a highly robust balance sheet.” CTO Steven Collins added that, “The Havok product line will be expanded, adding a new asset processing pipeline, a revolutionary new physics engine, and a new middleware product which will allow game developers to raise the character animation and dynamics bar for next generation games.” The company’s centerpiece Havok 2 physics engine has already been used in a number of high profile titles including Half-Life 2, Full Spectrum Warrior and Mercenaries.
