Wargaming Is Preparing For A Proper Retail Release

Wargaming teamed up with Gearbox to have one of its games receive a full retail release.

Wargaming might be familiar to you if you played one of the following games: World of Tanks, World of Warplanes, World of Warships. One of them, namely World of Warships: Legends Firepower Deluxe Edition, is the one that is getting a retail version. You might ask how is this possible, as World of Warships is a free-to-play title. Well, there is a good explanation for it: the 40-dollar retail version of World of Warships: Legends Firepower Deluxe Edition will have „premium content,” as well as in-game currency, on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The warship combat already has a release date, too: it will be available from November 15. There’s no European pre-ordering yet.

For Wargaming, this will be something new: the company, founded in 1998, focused on digital games, and most of them were real-time strategy titles. (No, we’re not considering last year’s physical World of Tanks release, as that wasn’t a full retail release but a limited collector’s edition!) The company has expanded strongly in the past few years: they opened a new studio in the United Kingdom last year to work on a new MMO, and the group is also teaming up with Frag Labs, using Amazon’s technology, to create a new IP (intellectual property).

So Wargaming is doing better than ever before, and their situation might improve even further – don’t be surprised if the World of Tanks game is going to get a PlayStation 5 and an Xbox Project Scarlett port! (The war of the tanks showed up on the Xbox One in July 2015, and in February 2016 on the PlayStation 4, respectively – free-to-play games have players even on consoles, too, and it shows!)
