World of Tanks firm Wargaming rolls into the UK

Free-to-play MMO specialist Wargaming has opened up shop in the UK.

The firm has announced a new studio in Guildford which will be working on a - wait for it - free-to-play MMO title. This is being built on Unreal and is a multiplatform affair.

The outfit is going to be set up by EA and CCP vet Sean Decker, whose portfolio includes the Battlefield, Mirror's Edge, Eve Online and - um - SimCity franchises.

This studio is going to have a core team of 25 people, which the World of Tanks firm is hiring for as we speak.

“With the expansion of Wargaming throughout many continents and countries, I’m excited to be opening up this studio in the UK and leading the development of a new Wargaming title,” said Decker.

“We’re looking forward to building a fantastic team in Guildford.”
