Wargaming.net claims more than 450,000 concurrent players on single server

Free-to-play MMO World of Tanks has surpassed 24 million users since its official release in April last year, it has been revealed.

Wargaming.net claims that the game, available in Europe, North America, Russia, China and most recently Asia Pacific, now has more than 450,000 concurrent players on one server.

Now celebrating its one year anniversary, the developer also revealed that 13 billion armoured vehicles had been destroyed, 75 billion shells had been fired and more than 350 million tank battles had taken place.

"Our growth over the last year has been nothing short of amazing," said Wargaming.net CEO Victor Kisly.

"A year ago, no one in the company could possibly imagine that World of Tanks would have skyrocketed like this. As the growth dynamics show, the game isn't slowing down anytime soon.

"We have massive expectations for the upcoming year, and we'll continue to drive game development that will keep our players engaged and excited."
