Wargaming picks up Day 1 Studios for console development.

With all the news floating around about major publishers shedding console development houses, lately, I found this to be a welcome and exciting change.

Wargaming – who you may remember from our Bonus Round interview with Chris Cook, or more limitedly, from our review of their flagship title, World of Tanks – has just spent $20M to purchase Day 1, who was responsible for such titles as F.3.A.R., Fracture, and Mechassault, in order to have them develop for consoles.

No specific plans for consoles has been announced, just that the plans, indeed, exist.
