World of Tanks creator Wargaming.net is celebrating 15 years of being in this business of games. Things are going well as they announce a new Austin, Texas office to handle global communications.

The studio also confirms the "many iconic military aircraft" of the British air force will be ready before World of Warplanes' official launch. It's also "too soon" for Total Annihilation news.

Oh right. You probably wanted me to lead in with that bit? Well, Wargaming.net is staying quiet for now on IPs Total Annihilation and Master of Orion since their acquisition.

It should be noted of course that Wargaming.net is now owner of Gas Powered Games, creator of Supreme Commander. They managed a pretty damn good spiritual successor to Total Annihilation because they just happened to be founded and run by Chris Taylor, the man responsible for the 'build bots, more bots, a few more, more, even more, attack!' RTS.

"Total Annihilation and Master of Orion are strategy game classics,” said Wargaming CEO Victor Kislyi. “Although it’s too soon to disclose any details, we are more than willing to give a new lease of life to these games most of us grew up playing. It’s exactly where our major focus will be.” CORE forever!

For those who just wouldn't feel right without piloting a Spitfire, Blenheim F or Javelin warplane sometime this year - fear not - because Wargaming confirms the British RAF will be chucks away in World of Warplanes before launch.

“British engineers built many iconic military aircraft that are a must for any flight combat game,” said Vlad Belozerov, World of Warplanes' Director of Global Operations. “Flying legends like the Spitfire, the Blenheim F and the Javelin warplanes will add a considerable amount of depth to the game and more immersion for players.”

World of Warplanes is currently in open beta.
