Obviously, Blizzard has been shopping around for a new graphics engine for some time (Diablo 3?). Released in July 2006, Havok 4.0 is a series of tools and technology that empowers Havok’s physics and animation products, along with introducing two new products with Havok Behaviour and Havok FX.
And here’s what Blizzard has to say:
Havok 4.0 will add power and flexibility to our development process,” said Mike Morhaime, president and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We’re looking forward to utilizing this technology with our upcoming games.
Now, what kind of upcoming games are we talking about? Some of the Diablo 3 rumors have been that Blizzard North actually completed Diablo 3 but it was NO fun to play. Hence, Blizzard North was sacked. Enter Havok 4 (are we seeing Diablo 3 on Playstation?).
