Wargaming opens up 15th office in Japan in plans for global expansion
Wargaming, most significantly known for its massively multiplayer online World of Tanks has recently further expanded globally with the launch of its newest publishing office in Tokyo, Japan. This expansion would also mark the company's 15th office around the world and especially made even more significant due to Wargaming's 15th anniversary.
In a bold move into making sure its presence around the world is clear cut solid, Wargaming's newest office will focus on everything from publishing duties to customer service as it prepares to roll out the global blockbuster in Japan. CEO of Wargaming Victor Kislyi also announced that the company will be hiring top professionals from the country to manage and ensure the best possible experience for all its players, adding that:
“As Wargaming continues its global expansion, there’s no possible way we can ignore the importance of the Japanese market, besides being one of the major video games markets in the world, it’s also a place where free-to-play gaming is growing by leaps and bounds."
It is interesting to observe the speed of expansion Wargaming has carefully and determinedly planned for World of Tanks, from its exploding phenomenon in the global eSports scene to the intense marketing around the world, it is indeed a more than welcoming addition.
