Gas Powered Games
is the latest acquisition for free-to-play giant Wargaming.net
. The company responsible for much-loved franchises like Demigod
, Supreme Commander
, and Dungeon Siege
will join Day 1 Studios
and middleware provider Big World Pty Ltd. under Wargaming's expanding umbrella.
Gas Powered was founded in 1998 by Chris Taylor
, who is among "a contingent of veteran developers" joining Wargaming.net. "Wargaming's growth in recent years has been tremendous, and we're looking forward to joining one of the fastest growing gaming companies in the world," Taylor said via press release.
Gas Powered most recently made headlines when Taylor canceled the firm's Wildman Kickstarter
project with four days (and $600,000) remaining.
