World of Battleships renamed to World of Warships
Wargaming, the company behind the extremely popular World of Tanks, announced today that they would be changing the title of their upcoming naval title World of Battleships, to just World of Warships. "The company is gearing up, and so are its titles," said Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming. "In addition to more accurately reflecting the game's core essence, World of Warships™ will correspond more closely to the framework of our Wargaming universe."
While we wont deny that World of Warships certainly has a better ring to it then World of Battleships, there is a question when it comes to how this will be abbreviated. Wargaming's first title in the series, World of Tanks has adopted the abbreviation WoT among its fans. With World of Warplanes currently in closed beta one can assume it will adopt a similarly abbreviated name such as WoW, and although World of Battleships' abbreviation may have been a tad silly to say out loud "Hey want to try out WoB?" at least it would still be unique. What do you think of the name change? Is it too close to World of Warplanes? How would you abbreviate it? Let us know in the comments.
World of Warships is scheduled to set sail sometime in 2013

I think they WANTED to make it's name similar to World of Warplanes. Or they may change name of World of Warplanes soon as well. You know, they wanted to call it World of Planes at first, but there was another game in development that had just that name. First it was "World of Planes", now it's "War Thunder: World of Planes".
