Gas Powered Games Is Working On A Free-to-Play MMO

As we reported a while back, Gas Powered Games was acquired by Wargaming after launching a Kickstarter for Wildman in a failed bid to keep the company alive. The studio has maintained radio silence since the Russian publisher swooped in to rescue it from the jaws of closure.

Today, Gas Powered Games has announced that it’s currently working on what it calls a “free-to-play triple-A MMO”. The announcement was made by the company’s founder Chris Taylor in an interview with Polygon.

Since its integration with, the studio has come to be known as Wargaming Seattle as a temporary name.

“That’s not 100 percent sure, but it’s not a bad thing to say,” said Taylor about the new name. “We went down to less than 10 people, but we’re back up to 30 now, and that number continues to grow.”

Taylor says that he’s unable to provide additional details about the game they’re currently working on, but that they’ll be releasing further informing in a few months time.

No Chriss, it is a bad thing to say. A very bad thing. Lordy knows there just aren’t enough mmo’s out there now. We need at least 50 more. Yeah, you go get em. While your at it. pull your head out. It will help you understand your failure again.
Someday you people will understand, that the gaming world does not revolve around mmo’s, but a lot of you will die by them.

TheDog is pretty much correct here. Of all the things you could have pushed as as last-ditch Kickstarter…”Wildman”? Really, Chris? First you broke most of your promises regarding Supreme Commander – remember how it was going to have built-in mod support out of the box?? Then you utterly massacred Dungeon Siege. And now this. I think I’m done waiting for Chris Taylor to pull it together.
