Official announcement from Wargaming NA. As broken by us in this post.
Wargaming is reorganizing its U.S.-based development and publishing office structure.
The successful North American publishing efforts will now be relocated and incorporated into two existing U.S. Wargaming locations. North American publishing for World of Tanks Console will now move to the Wargaming Chicago-Baltimore studio. North American Wargaming PC publishing efforts will be based in the Wargaming Austin office.
Wargaming’s Emeryville, CA office will close March 31, 2018.

Delaying the promised US-EU transfers even more…
You know that’s not gonna happen until there is less than 500 players left or so. OR, they will make us pay a considerable amount. It’s in their best interest not to let us transfer, and rather purchase all our stuff again
at least you guys have transfers. there are still some guys in SEA who want to transfer from AND to NA
Console moving more stuff to the Chigaco location? Well console is even more screwed.
25-35k active users…sooooooo successful.
I actually read that as ‘the successful parts will be moved, the others will be closed down’. Which is not that uncommon.
Not a problem. NA player offset this with the shitload of premiums they buy..
you guys forget how physically small the Landmass of North America Is and the target age make that say 2/3’s smaller so really i think they are doing good.
EU3 coming….in US location. 😀
they are just making the smart move to get the fuck outta Commifornia
If it is successful, then why do you need to relocate?
Proof that they are not that successful.
Wonder how much of the staff will make the move. Meathead Militia etc.
“will now move to the Wargaming Chicago-Baltimore studio.”
Ummmm…. that’s a huge studio to cover from Chicago to Baltimore.
What rhymes with ale? Wargaming fail!
