Wargaming disbanded its R&D division. The company is undergoing restructuring.
Developer and publisher Wargaming has closed its R&D division. Information about this in a letter to the App2Top website was confirmed by the company’s press service.
This week, several independent sources confirmed to us the termination of the division. It operated in five offices, including the Wargaming headquarters in Nicosia, Cyprus. In total, it employed more than 100 people (according to an unofficial source)*.
Important: mass layoffs should not be expected. As the press service noted, ” employees were offered to find a place in the company in other positions.”
This is partly confirmed by one of the sources, but with an important addition. According to him, the developers of the former R&D really remained in the company. At the same time, management was reduced. He also says that the products that were run by the R&D Department remained in operation. Another source, however, says that all projects of the former division have already been closed.
According to Wargaming, the decision to abolish the Department was made during the company’s restructuring. R&D activity as such does not stop. In existing product groups, it is in full swing.
