AusGamers recently spoke with Wargaming boss Victor Kislyi who talked at length with them about the beginnings of their World of empire, where he sees the industry going and not jokingly having the goal of reaching one billion players with their popular franchise.
"I really believe in the one billion potential users concept," he emphatically told AusGamers. "It’s not an exaggeration. We just need to get to them. Facebook and Zynga showed us... they just demonstrated that there could be one billion people connected to one network, and then there could be, again, hundreds of millions of housewives, older guys, younger guys, guys from those regions where people don’t play computer games... suddenly become gamers."
