Wargaming, the creators of World of Tanks (and pretty much any other vehicle used in battle), is expanding their empire. Today, the developer announced the opening of a new studio in Guildford, Surrey. For those of us unfamiliar with the layout of England, Guildford is a town about an hour and a half southwest of London. (At least according to Google Maps.)

The new studio will be headed up by Sean Decker, a 17-year veteran of the games industry who has worked for the likes of EA, DICE, and CCP on some rather popular games. Eventually, Decker will head up a team of about 25 people working on a (currently) unannounced free-to-play MMO title. The new title will be multi-platform -- not sure if they mean it will have cross-platform play or just be available on multiple platforms -- and will run on the Unreal Engine.

If you're interested in joining the Wargaming team, the developer did link their current job listings -- which includes a wide variety of positions for the new studio -- in their press release. They're looking for everything from tech and art people to money people, so get in there and see what you might be qualified for.

Unreal Engine mmo = lags

I don't know if they can offer anything different or interesting to me. I like Fantasy and Sci-Fi MMOs, The Secret World is set in real world 21st century and this is one turn off for me. Since they make war games, mostly set in WW2, I have a hard time imagining them making an MMO that's not about this...
