Wargaming VR Plans: Not for Games

Hello everyone,

WarGaming spokesman, Ivan Zhivitsa, was recently interviewed regarding WG’s plans of bringing World of Tanks to various VR platforms:

“You have to wait for the market to be formed. So far it is not profitable to be engaged in serious development.”

According to the company statistics, the total percentage of players with VR equipment is in the range of a statistical error. Those devices also have many shortcomings such as short operating times.

The company is, however, developing VR content for entertainment and educational purposes.

“We believe that one good prospective direction for VR is for educational content and programs. We have drawn a deal with Google and together are promoting such projects. We went with them on a number of projects- virtual tours of military equipment and tanks- exploring the inside of a tank or warship. We have about 6 million views on our videos.”

The company is also working on broadcasting eSports content with VR platforms.

“So far its only in test mode. We are preparing a platform. Not a separate game, but a way of consuming content.”
