Wargaming Expands to Europe

from the expansion desk

Wargaming.net, developer of BigWorld-powered World of Tanks, is riding its success into two new European offices.

The Paris office will be headed by Frederic Menou, former European Director for Blizzard. The Berlin office will be managed by Mario Baumann, General Manager for Wargaming.net Europe.

BigWorld is proud to be Wargaming.net’s middleware partner as they continue to grow, both with regards to World of Tanks as well recently-announced World of Warplanes.

And, from the full press release, probably the most succinct summary of Wargaming.net we’ve seen:

Since 1998, the company has shipped 13 titles, including acclaimed Massive Assault series, Order of War RTS published by Square Enix, and three add-ons for Blitzkrieg II.
