Wargaming's UK studio rebrands as DPS Games

World of Tanks giant Wargaming's UK studio has been rebranded as DPS Games.

The Guildford-based outfit was previously Edge Case Games, with Wargaming buying that studio back in 2018 and rebranding it as Wargaming UK after announcing its intention to set up shop in the UK. It now boasts more than 94 members of staff, while a new Australian support outfit has 70 employees.

The outfit's new name, DPS, is meant to reflect that it is making very different projects to Wargaming's other studios.

"At DPS Games, we still remain a proud member of the Wargaming family – intrinsically linked through infrastructure, ecosystems and community," DPS' studio head Sean Decker (pictured) said.

"That said, our games will be very different – and our players will be, too. Together, we’ve faced many challenges, but we’ve had a huge amount of fun along the way. It is this journey of passion and play that has forged DPS Games, and here, play is everything."

Wargaming CEO Victor Kislyi added: "After watching the incredible growth of the studio in Guildford over the past two years, we at Wargaming are excited to see DPS Games take shape and expand the influence of Wargaming in new parts of the world. This is an experienced team of industry veterans and rising stars who are growing by the day, and we are eager to watch them bring something new and distinctive to the free-to-play market."

We caught up with Decker following the studio's opening in December of last year.
