tl;dr: Wargaming will no longer be involved in this game. From now on, the game will be in the hands of Studio 1C. The only question is when this project will be completely closed. Maybe in 2, 3 years?
In connection with the transition of Caliber to independent operation of 1C Game Studios, the project is waiting for a “move” to new servers, a launcher and a store. The version of “Caliber” will be improved and filled with new content after the restart. Caliber will be removed from Wargaming Game Center. Therefore, 1C Game Studios will publish Caliber.
For four years, Caliber was created by 1C Game Studios and Wargaming. During this time, thanks to the hard work of the team and the support of the players, the project has gone from an idea to a working game with an audience of thousands.
From January 27, 2021, the game “Caliber” is fully transferred to the operation of 1C Game Studios. Wargaming will continue to develop flagship projects and implement new ideas. This decision takes into account the interests of both parties, and the partner companies made it together. All the victorious fights held in” Caliber” and for “Caliber” up to this time are the common merit of the players and all participants of the unified team of 1C Game Studios and Wargaming!
The transfer of cases is in full swing now. 1C Game Studios is working on technologies and services that are needed for self-publishing the game. New content is also created at the same time. For example, the first female division will appear in “Caliber”, the first map of the new theater of operations, the Combat Pass will be launched, the account and operatives will be upgraded more flexibly and will make the game more interesting.
You can try out some changes from the future update and participate in the quest on the Sandbox test server. It will be launched next week. To leave an application to participate, simply register on the website playcaliber.com. We will send you an invitation by email when access to the Sandbox is open.
You can also link your Wargaming ID to your Caliber account on new sites in advance to transfer your purchase data. By doing this, you will allow us to fully compensate all funds invested in the game. To do this, register as an old player.
Project migration is a complex procedure that requires serious technical solutions. Caliber will be served by other servers and placed in a new launcher, and a new store will be created. Features of data transmission require zeroing before launching the “Caliber” at new capacities. All your real money invested in the project will be fully refunded, and success in the game will be rewarded with special bonuses, from emblems to sets of several operatives.
📰 “After the start of the OBT, we said that there would be no more wipe. At that time, we were sure of this and certainly did not expect that the situation would turn out this way. We know that this is an acute moment for the players. Therefore, we have developed a compensation system and prepared bonuses for players of different levels of involvement. Operatives from the Premium store earned in the Battle Pass will be re-credited, and all real money invested in the product will be reimbursed with the same goods and game gold. The team continues to actively work on improving the game. Now we have two main goals — to make the transition quick and painless, and the “Caliber” itself even more diverse and interesting for players.”
– Creative producer of the game Albert “Loft” Zhiltsov.
We thank all the Caliber players for their support of the project — we have many more interesting missions and high-profile victories ahead of us. Fight!
