Wargaming UK Rebrands As DPS Games, Is Hiring For Unannounced Free-To-Play Game

Two years ago, Fractured Space developer Edge Case Games was absorbed into Wargaming's UK division, which then had 55 employees. That number has since ballooned to 94, and today the sub-studio, which is working on an unannounced free-to-play game, has changed its name and will now go by DPS Games.

In addition to the nearly 100 employees in the UK, DPS Games also has another studio in Australia with 70 members and has plans to open a U.S. branch, as well. There are 22 vacancies listed on its website, and the qualifications for some of them include "Operating a live free-to-play game service" or something similar. Other qualifications listed among the DPS Games job openings include experience in "combat games," Unreal Engine 4, and both PC and console games.

That all makes sense when you consider DPS Games' parent company, although the intro video below says that its game "may also be a bit different from the hits that have made Wargaming a famous company." Does that mean it will stray from the WW2 theme, possibly producing a sci-fi title? A moment after that graphic, we see a spaceship blasting off to symbolize "new adventures" -- or is that a broader hint as to the game's subject matter?

Or maybe DPS Games is planning something different from the genre of match-based PvP games, which are abundantly prevalent these days and a common factor in everything Wargaming produces. Could we finally see another company embrace a persistent open-world PvP game like PlanetSide 2? That would be my hope, at least, but we'll just have to wait and see what the company has planned.
