French cruisers in WG’s New Year video?

Thanks to ViKing_6 for sending this to me:

I believe you have seen this video already:

But have you noticed in it many clues pointing towards French Cruisers?

First, the ship on the letter.

As you can see, it has a French flag, with vivid colors when compared to the rest of the letter (intended to be seen?)
Now, even better : this drawing is not a random drawing of a random imaginary ship.
It represents a French Bougainville-class colonial aviso, such as the Dumont-D’Urville, which can be seen here :

Just compare.

And, last but not least, have you noticed in the pile of presents, some strange pack ?
Right here :

No, not the Steven (Seagal ?) jacket, not the British anchor nor the PVE package… but the present with the Tricolore ribbon, and the Cruiser sign on it!

Could it be a hint on WG’s priorities for the year to come ?

  1. French cruisers would be cool but I can’t imagine what they’d use for a Tier X…The projected “St. Louis” heavy cruisers seem more like Tier VIIIs. The “Colbert” as the top of the tree?

  2. There are a bunch of hints from here that match up with what has been hinted from Q&As:
    French cruiser present and diagram => French Cruisers
    Large UK anchor => UK Battleships
    PvE gift => New PvE content planned

    As well as a nod to recently introduced missions + Seagal.

  3. Great spotting there, I look forward to them! French cruisers that go faster in reverse, and RN battleships that, uh – fire HE only? I do SO love the balancing team’s sense of humour when it comes to new ship lines…
