Developer Wargaming have acquired Gas Powered Games

World of Tanks developer Wargaming have acquired the studio Gas Powered Games.

It's a surprise announcement that few saw coming. According to a release sent to VG247;
“Take full ownership of Gas Powered Games, bringing into its fold a contingent of veteran developers, including CEO and company founder Chris Taylor.”
It was looking grim for GPG as they recently failed to get their title Wildman funded on Kickstarter and were openly seeking assistance. However, it was not expected that Wargaming would be the one to come to their rescue.
“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.”

CEO of Gas Powered Games Chris Taylor 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.”
