Wargaming.net is celebrating the first anniversary of its highly acclaimed online action game, World of Tanks, with more than 24 million registered players worldwide. World of Tanks, officially launched on April 12th, 2011, has become one of the fastest growing free-to-play MMO games with servers in Europe, North America, Russia and China and recent expansion into Asia Pacific.
Over the past year, virtual tankmen from around the globe have:
-- Participated in 350 million battles
-- Fired more than 75 billion shells with 48 billion direct hits
-- Destroyed more than 13 billion armored vehicles
"Our growth over the last year has been nothing short of amazing," says Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming.net. "A year ago, no one in the company could possibly imagine that World of Tanks would have skyrocketed like this. As the growth dynamics show, the game isn't slowing down anytime soon. We have massive expectations for the upcoming year, and we'll continue to drive game development that will keep our players engaged and excited."
World of Tanks holds the Guinness World Record for the "Most Players Online Simultaneously on One MMO Server," reaching 91,311 concurrent players on the game's Russian server on January 23rd, 2011. Since setting this record, the popular MMO has broken its own record multiple times, now with more than 450,000 concurrent players on one server.
