WarGaming.Net is entering nextgen console market
WarGaming.Net acquired for 20mil USD, Chicago based game developer, Day 1 Studios.
The Chicago studio will focus solely on console gaming, working on an as yet undisclosed title. The studio is best known for ports of first-person shooter F.E.A.R. and LucasArts Fracture. The studio has been renamed Wargaming West.
WarGaming tries to enter console market, not even current generation market, but next gen. The earliest possible for this new game 2015, .....
Instead of using the extra money they had on fixing the god damn fucking piece of crap BigWorld engine client side, or I dunno .. finish World of Warplanes and World of Warships, they decide to give a fuck and enter console market, but just not yet.
The next gen consoles will 100% have multicore CPUs and we all know how well BigWorld does with those - absolutely terrible.
Guess they will have to create a new engine from scratch or hmm .. buy a new game engine dev for 60mil USD this time.
Hey .. they could've got Vigil from now defunct THQ, or enter the bidding for any of the dev teams under THQ's umbrella.
