New Orleans studio to use tech on upcoming MMO

Wargaming.net has signed up as a licensee of BigWorld's Technology Suite.

The New Orleans headquartered firm, which also has a development office in Minsk, Belarus, will be using the MMO solution to develop its first massively-multiplayer title.

“Having built many engines from the ground up, we were looking for a complete solution to develop our first MMO that will save us time and eliminate technical risks," said Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming.net.

“BigWorld’s Technology Suite, along with their world-class support, is key in allowing us to develop our title quickly, without sacrificing the quality and features we expect of a best-of-class middleware solution.”

Mike Allenson, BigWorld’s business development manager for Europe/Russia, added: “Working with Wargaming.net is truly a pleasure. They have extensive development experience and a long history of creating great games. We’re excited to be partnering with this highly professional team, using our platform to expand and innovate in the MMO market both here in Eastern Europe as well as worldwide.”
