Wargaming

Wargaming has closed down their Seattle studio today with the loss of around 150 jobs.

The Wargaming Seattle studio was previously Chris Taylor’s Gas Powered Games (Dungeon Siege and Total Annihilation) and Wargaming acquired Gas Powered back in 2013 after Taylor failed to raise funding for his Kickstarter for ARPG Wildman. Taylor left the new Wargaming studio back in November 2016 to start a new indie studio which has is also now apparently closed.

Wargaming CEO Victor Kislyi called a meeting this morning according to Gamasutra and announced the studio was to completely shut down and all staff were let go.
