Wargaming, the developer behind the free-to-play hit World of Tanks, has announced they will be opening a studio in Austin, Texas. This comes exactly 15 years since the developer was founded.
The new studio will serve as a central hub to help the communication between Wargaming's other studios. The studio will house its central technology, global business intelligence and producing center groups.
Wargaming also now owns the rights to two classic strategy games Total Annihilation and Master of Orion. The news was first announced at the Atari bankruptcy auction in July.
"Total Annihilation and Master of Orion are strategy game classics. Although it's too soon to disclose any details, we are more than willing to give a new lease of life to these games most of us grew up playing," said Wargaming CEO Victor Kislyi in a statement. "It's exactly where our major focus will be."
Wargaming acquired Gas-Powered Games earlier this year, which was founded by the original designer of Total Annihilation Chris Taylor.
