The next-generation of the Havok engine will be shown at GDC, the company confirmed to our sister site Eurogamer.net this afternoon.
"We've got Havok 4.5, which is now fully optimised for next-generation," said a spokesperson for Havok. "But it's Havok behaviour really; we'll be showing it as a finished product."
So far the engine has featured in games such as Crackdown, F.E.A.R, Dead Rising and Oblivion, placing itself as a market leader in middleware physics.
The demo being shown in San Francisco next week won't feature as part of a next-generation game, but it will show off what Havok believes to be its key feature: the behavioural engine.
