Microsoft is purchasing physics engine maker Havok from Intel for an undisclosed sum.

The company confirmed with IGN that the technology will continue to be licensed to "the broad AAA games industry," including companies making titles for Sony and Nintendo platforms.

"As we welcome Havok to the Microsoft family, we will continue to work with developers to create great gaming experiences, and continue to license Havok's development tools to partners. 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."

In 2008, Havok won an Emmy from the Academy of Television, Arts & Sciences for its physics tech.
