World of Tanks : $10M Investment in eSports touted
Wargaming announced this weekend that it is prepared to invest $10M dollars to develop the eSports side of its games, most notably World of Tanks.
This is an additional $2M over last year's $8M investment into the eSports side of the gaming company.
"With our eSports team we founded a company within the company," he said. "They take care not only about game features to cater to spectators, but also about the physical organisation of the tournaments.
"In the beginning, it was not so much us who wanted to introduce World of Tanks to eSports, it was the players themselves who wanted to be more competitive."
