Wargaming, the builders of World of Warplanes, World of Tanks, and World of Warships, is opening a brand new studio within the UK. According to a press launch issued earlier at this time, the brand new Guildford-based studio might be engaged on a brand new IP.
At the time of writing, that new IP has not been introduced, however Wargaming’s press launch says that the studio “will be working on an unannounced free-to-play multiplatform MMO title built in the Unreal Engine.” The studio might be headed by Sean Decker, who has beforehand labored at EA, DICE, and Eve Online builders CCP.
As effectively as the continued improvement round their team-based automobile games, Wargaming is presently engaged on one other venture. At Gamescom earlier this yr, the corporate’s CEO, Victor Kislyi, advised us that it’s a free-to-play, slow-paced FPS, that includes each PvE and PvP parts, varied lessons, and genuine weaponry. However, it’s not all that probably that that is what the brand new studio might be engaged on. The new game has a reputation – Calibre – whereas the studio might be engaged on one thing but to be introduced.
The protected assumption, then, is that the brand new IP might be one other ‘World of’ title, however I couldn’t inform you what it’ll deal with, on condition that the studio has already lined a big variety of the currently-existing modes of vehicular warfare.
To have a good time the brand new studio, World of Warships is getting a brand-new suite of content material centered on the United Kingdom. There’ll be a brand new Royal Navy occasion arc, in addition to a brand new department of British Destroyers. Operation Dynamo, the game’s PvE situation, can also be again, after a prolonged rebalancing course of.
Elsewhere, World of Warships is heading both deep below the sea – submarines and sea monsters will seem within the game for its Halloween occasion, as a consequence of start within the coming weeks.
