Splash Damage allies itself with World of Tanks developer to work on brand new projects.
London-based game studio Splash Damage – noted for its work on Brink, and F2P FPS Dirty Bomb – has announced a partnership with Wargaming, developer and publisher of World of Tanks and World of Warships, to develop a number of brand new projects.
Given the studio’s history of providing multiplayer expertise to the likes of Gears of War 4, Doom 3, and Batman: Arkham Origins – plus its experience in the free-to-play market – the deals seems like a natural fit.
Paul Wedgwood, CEO and Founder of Splash Damage, said:
“Splash Damage is known for building loyal relationships with the world’s leading platforms, IPs and suppliers, and creating one-of-a-kind teamplay hits. As gamers, Victor and I share the same passion for our communities. We actively listen to players and strive to put their needs first, whilst forging multiplayer experiences that champion cooperation and help develop new friendships. The Wargaming universe gives our team a great creative canvas, allowing us to develop a game experience for a massive, loyal following, and we’re extremely excited to get started.”
Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming, added:
“What impresses me most about Splash Damage is their passion for every project they take on. They’re working incredibly hard to create truly memorable games, won’t stop until everything runs like clockwork, and share in our values of player-focused game design, which makes them just the right partner for Wargaming.”
The studio are wasting no time in hiring, with range of programming, art and production positions now listed on the company’s website.

We have a favour to ask
Thumbsticks has a couple of main aims. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
