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
