In a lengthy interview with AusGamers, Wargaming CEO and mastermind, Victor Kislyi, candidly talked about the publisher/developer's incredible success, where he sees the industry in the future and having the actual goal of reaching one billion players with the World of Tanks brand.
"I really believe in the one billion potential users concept," he emphatically told us. "It’s not an exaggeration. We just need to get to them. Facebook and Zynga showed us... they just demonstrated that there could be one billion people connected to one network, and then there could be, again, hundreds of millions of housewives, older guys, younger guys, guys from those regions where people don’t play computer games... suddenly become gamers."
The entire 29(+) minute video is incredibly interesting, especially when looking at pay models for F2P gaming and how one company can be so successful with such a small outline of projects (and effectively just one game powering it all, at the moment). We also discuss Chris Taylor, next-gen consoles, Aussie servers and much, much more.
