When GPG shut down their Wildman Kickstarter ahead of schedule, they hinted that the company has secured its future in another fashion — and now the mystery has been revealed.
Wargaming, publishers of World of Tanks and others, have announced their acquisition of the Seattle-based company for an undisclosed figure. Naturally, they’re pretty excited about it.
“Gas Powered Games’ heritage and development pedigree shows us just how valuable an addition Chris and his company will make to the Wargaming family,” said Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming. “Gas Powered Games has a long track record of providing incredibly engaging AAA gaming experiences and we can’t wait to start working with them.”
Wargaming also recently acquired both Day-1 Studios (the team behind Fracture and F.E.A.R. 3) and also Big World Pty Ltd, the Canberra-based spinoff from MicroForte who develop the BigWorld engine used by the flagship World of Tanks.
