Wargaming aren’t ready for cross combat between World of Tanks, Warplanes and Battleships


Talking to PCGamesN at the launch of British tanks last week, Wargaming CEO Victor Kislyi explained that Wargaming was not quite ready for full cross combat integration of their hugely successful trio of World of… games.

“The reality is that first we have to concentrate on quality Tank gameplay, quality Warplane gameplay and quality Battleship gameplay,” Victor explained, adding that “right now we don’t have plans for the nearest future to combine three games on one battlefield. That would be another game.”
However they do have plans to integrate World of Tanks, Warplanes and eventually Battleships (after its release in 2013) via Clan Wars, Kislyi explains. “For World of Tanks, World of Warplanes and World of Battleships we plan to do Clan War levels, but it’s not in final design yet”.
Victor also described how important it is they get World of Warplanes right as “there are millions of enthusiasts for flight simulation games so we cannot disappoint them.”
“World of Tanks was a game nobody was expecting anything from,” he continued, “we could afford a couple of rough edges, it was not perfect we just had this opportunity to release what we had, then build on that and upgrade it as we were going. With World of Warplanes we don’t have such luxury because of the success of Word of Tanks. We can literally feel cameras and microphones pointing at World of Warplanes. The industry and players expect nothing but top notch quality in everything; graphics, sound, controls, content, visuals. Everything”

British tanks finally made their way into World of Tanks after a considerable delay.
