Wargaming acquires Gas Powered Games

Chris Taylor and studio saved at the last minute

The issues surrounding Gas Power Games have been watched pretty closely here, and when the developer announced the canceling of its Kickstarter campaign to create Wildman, it was unclear what was next. It has since been announced that Taylor and studio have been acquired by Wargaming.

Wargaming has been growing recently, with the company buying both Day 1 studios in Chicago and MMO Middleware developer, Big World Pty Ltd. By adding Gas Powered Games, the company adds a triple-A developer to its roster with experience creating a number of popular titles, including Dungeon Siege, Supreme Commander and Demigod.

It is unclear yet as to what Gas Powered Games will be working on first for Wargaming, and the fate of Wildman is also unknown. It would be a very good fit long-term for Gas Powered Games. It also remains unknown how many developers will be invited to return to work at Gas Powered Games.
