World of Tanks developer Wargaming is closing down its Seattle studio in a move that will affect as many as 150 staff.
The word initially broke out on Twitter but was shortly confirmed by former lead UX designer Michael Schorr on his account.
Another former Wargaming Seattle dev told Gamasutra that a surprise "all-hands" meeting was called at the studio. During that meeting Wargaming CEO Victor Kislyi informed the team the entire studio would be shut down.
Fellow industry developers have since resurrected the hashtag #WGJobs to try and help their peers land on their feet.
