Wargaming Acquires Gas Powered Games

In light of a failed kickstarter project to fund a game called Wildman, Gas Powered Games desperately sought help elsewhere, and World of Tanks developer Wargaming were quick to rise to the occasion.

The developer claims that they would “Take full ownership of Gas Powered Games, bringing into its fold a contingent of veteran developers, including CEO and company founder Chris Taylor.”

The developer further adds:

“Gas Powered Games’ heritage and development pedigree shows us just how valuable an addition Chris and his company will make to the Wargaming family,” claims Victor Kislyi, Wargaming’s CEO. “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.”

Gas Powered Games CEO Chris Taylor also expressed lots of positivity, stating that: “Wargaming growth in recent years has been tremendous, and we’re looking forward to joining one of the fastest growing gaming companies in the world. I’m sure our experience and expertise will help us contribute even more to Wargaming’s global success.”

Gas Powered Games are noted for their Supreme Commander and Dungeon Siege series, both of which have attracted a small, but devoted fanbase over the years. Their upcoming game Wildman will, according to the developer, “combine the best of GPG's technology and experience with Role Playing Games, Real Time Strategies, and Battle Arenas into one enormous wild ride.
