World of Tanks publisher Wargaming has opened a UK office
World of Tanks developer/publisher Wargaming has opened a UK office and is growing its team to work on a brand new free-to-play game.
The Wargaming UK studio in Guildford is staffed by a veteran team who are developing a fresh new IP, which has now been in the works for over a year.
The newly opened office will be led by Sean Decker, a gaming industry veteran, who has worked for Electronic Arts, DICE and CCP over the past 17 years and on franchises such as Battlefield, Mirror’s Edge, SimCity and Eve Online.

Its main game, World of Tanks, is a 7v7 shooter with its own esports scene that first launched back in 2010. While it’s popular in former Soviet Union nations, as well as the likes of Germany and Poland, Wargaming say that there’s room for them to expand in the Western Market, across the US and Europe.
Wargaming UK studio director Sean Decker told GamesIndustry.biz: “World of Tanks was targeting something that was very familiar to people who grew up in ex-Soviet Union, CIS, Eastern Europe. A lot of citites and towns in Eastern Europe and CIS have a tank in their town square and a monument to World War II. People grew up with that.
“With the expansion of Wargaming throughout many continents and countries, I’m excited to be opening up this studio in the UK and leading the development of a new Wargaming title,” says Sean Decker, Product Director. “We’re looking forward to building a fantastic team in Guildford.”
