Wargaming developer interview discusses World of Tanks and World of Warships' future on PS4 and Xbox

What's next for gaming juggernaut Wargaming.net? While the PC properties roll on, there's plenty to look forward to in the console space, too.


Wargaming.net has rapidly built an empire founded by some of the best free-to-play offerings in gaming. But while games like World of Tanks and World of Warships have largely propped Wargaming up in the PC world, there's a bright future ahead in the console space, as well.

Shacknews recently had a chance to chat with the folks at Wargaming about the console iterations of World of Tanks: Mercenaries and the upcoming World of Warships: Legends. But Wargaming is going farther than just porting the PC version. They're rebuilding these games with the console player in mind, adjusting the game's presentation and controls accordingly.
