As you might’ve heard, Gas Powered Games has been in dire trouble. After canceling their Kickstarter Project ‘Wildman’ three days ago, many were left to wonder what would become of the beloved creator of the Dungeon Siege series. Well, my friends, wonder no more.
Wargaming.net has announced that they have acquired Gas Powered Games in full. By ‘in full’, I mean in the most wonderful way possible.
From the press release:
Wargaming will take full ownership of Gas Powered Games, bringing into its fold a contingent of veteran developers, including CEO and company founder Chris Taylor. The acquisition will further bolster Wargaming’s push into multiplatform expansion, including the recent acquisition announcement of Chicago-based Day 1 Studios and MMO middleware provider Big World Pty Ltd.“Gas Powered Games’ heritage and development pedigree shows us just how valuable an addition Chris and his company will make to the Wargaming family,” said Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming. “Gas Powered Games has a long track record of providing incredibly engaging AAA gaming experiences and we can’t wait to start working with them.”“Wargaming growth in recent years has been tremendous, and we’re looking forward to joining one of the fastest growing gaming companies in the world,” added Chris Taylor, CEO of Gas Powered Games. “I’m sure our experience and expertise will help us contribute even more to Wargaming’s global success.”
