Autodesk Acquires Bitsquid AB Game Engine with Plans to Utilize the Technology Outside the Game Industry
Tuesday, June 17, 2014
Autodesk has acquired Bitsquid AB, the creator of the Bitsquid game engine. The acquisition allows Autodesk to tap into the expertise in 3D game development and technology that will enable Autodesk to enhance its portfolio of tools for game makers through the development of a new 3D game engine.
The new technology will also be incorporated into solutions for customers outside of the game industry, including architecture, manufacturing, construction, and film. Autodesk plans to create new types of design exploration tools that allow visualization and contextualization of designs using the same control and feedback that exist today in modern console and PC games.
Autodesk's plans to leverage its acquisition of Bitsquid to provide non gaming industries access to real-time exploration of complex data. The company is banking on the concept that game engine technologies will be an increasingly critical part of workflow, not only for creating games, but also for designing buildings or solving other complex infrastructure.
