Wargaming has acquired Seattle-based developer Gas Powered Games, the World of Tanks creator has announced.
Wargaming will take full ownership of Gas Powered Games, further bolstering the firm's multi-platform expansion – recently Wargaming announced the acquisitions of Chicago-based Day 1 Studios and MMO middleware provider Big World Pty Ltd.
Gas Powered Games created Dungeon Siege, Supreme Commander and Demigod.
"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."
Chris Taylor, CEO of Gas Powered Games added: "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. I'm sure our experience and expertise will help us contribute even more to Wargaming's global success."
The future of Gas Powered Games' cancelled Kickstarter project Wildman remains unclear.
