Wargaming.net has acquired Day 1 Studios for $20 million. The developer of MechAssault, F.E.A.R. 3, and Fracture has been renamed Wargaming West and will focus on making console titles of some sort, and will get started on an unannounced game.
"The move into console game development is a huge step for Wargaming, as we begin to expand our presence into new platforms," said Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming. "We are looking forward to sharing the fruits of our labor soon."
"Wargaming is a clear leader in the free-to-play space and helps set the standard on which all other games in the genre strive for,” head of Wargaming West Denny Thorley. "Our team is extremely excited to start the first console project for Wargaming."
