The developers at Wargaming.net - the folks behind the stratospherically popular World of Tanks - are preparing an assault on the console market, and today announced the acquisition the Chicago-based Day 1 Studios for $20 million.
According to a press release sent out by Wargaming, their newly formed studio will "focus exclusively on the development of an unannounced console title."
"The move into console game development is a huge step for Wargaming, as we begin to expand our presence into new platforms," said Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming. "We are looking forward to sharing the fruits of our labor soon."
"Wargaming is a clear leader in the free-to-play space and helps set the standard on which all other games in the genre strive for," said Denny Thorley, the new head of Wargaming Chicago. "Our team is extremely excited to start the first console project for Wargaming."
Will it involve tanks? Hopefully. We love tanks.
