Forbes -- With over 45 million gamers engaging in virtual combat in the free-to-play World of Tanks online game, publisher Wargaming has been rapidly expanding its global operations with over 1,300 employees around the world. The game maker just acquired console developer Day 1 Studios for $20 million as it looks to expand beyond the PC gaming space that it’s currently dominating. The company has also entered the lucrative eSports arena with World of Tanks and is readying two new online games, World of Warplanes and World of Warships.
The company has worked with its robust gaming community to give back to real American heroes. Wargaming held varying fundraising campaigns for AMVETS, Military Families Fund, Homes for our Troops and Paralyzed Veterans of America in honor of Military Appreciation Month and Veteran’s Day.
