Gas Powered Games, the team behind the Dungeon Siege and Supreme Commander franchises, has been bought by World of Tanks creator Wargaming.net. Gas Powered Games has had recent trouble staying afloat, with a large amount of layoffs leading to a recently cancelled Kickstarter.
Wargaming is going to take full ownership of GPG, including CEO and founder Chris Taylor. Wargaming will look to push harder into multiplatform expansion with this acquisition, though only time will tell what that entails.
Will we ever see Wildman again? Is this simply to make the World of Tanks and future games bigger and better? It's hard to know for sure, but at least people still have jobs over at Gas Powered Games, as they are definitely a talented bunch.
