Wargaming CEO Wants 1 Billion Players for World of Tanks, isn't Joking - AusGamers

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.

Not really, but they can dream I suppose lol. Perhaps one day, a game will come along that gets that many. It would have to be something incredible though to pull so many people into one thing.

Not even 30, it barely has 20 mill and it is not going to get bigger, it is already an old game, its probably at its peak, it being on Xbox 360 is barely going to help it.
