Wargaming's hugely popular MMO heading to current-gen console

E3 2013: World of Tanks coming to 360

The Wargaming developed PC MMO World of Tanks has been specially optimised for an Xbox 360 release.

The news emerged as today’s E3 Microsoft press conference began. The game is currently not yet confirmed for Xbox One.

"When we thought about which console platform delivers the best world of tanks experience," said Wargaming boss Victor Kisly, taking to the stage at the event. "Xbox 360 and the 48 million member Xbox live community were the perfect match. World of Tanks provides team-based 15-on-15 player armoured warfare where you take the drivers seat of the world’s most powerful tanks.

"We have workred hard to adapt and tailor the world of tanks experience to Xbox 360,’ he continued.

"We will bring World of Tans to life to millions of Xbox fans around the world."

The game is set to arrive this summer.
