Wargaming, the makers of World of Tanks have now acquired full ownership of Chris Taylor and his studio Gas Powered Games.
Taylor commented on the purchase: “Wargaming growth in recent years has been tremendous, and we’re looking forward to joining one of the fastest growing gaming companies in the world. I’m sure our experience and expertise will help us contribute even more to Wargaming’s global success.”
So what happens to Kings and Castles now? The real-time strategy game was announced back in 2010 but was then put on hold of various reasons, one of them relating to financial constraints. Later on Taylor dissolved plans to go for a Kickstarter project, probably because the amount of funds needed for the project was too much for Kickstarter to generate.
However, with Gas-Powered Games now under the flag of Wargaming, we might see Kings and Castles back in development.
