Wargaming.net, a company behind World of Tanks and World of Warships (also World of Warplanes, but realistically who cares?) is apparently leaving Russia and Belarus.
This is a surprising news since Wargaming was founded in Belarus and had "main office" in Sankt Petersburg, but as usual in case of that company nothing is as simple as it seems. Their main office is in Cyprus, while their Sankt Petersburg office was practically running World of Warships.
First of all it was really surprising for their employees, who learnt just hours before announcement that they lost their jobs. Or to be more specific they most likely lost their jobs, because company will try to relocate them to Poland, Lithuania and other countries, but there is no clear information what does that mean and how it will be done.
Second surprising element of the story is that they... don’t really leave Russia or Belarus. What does that mean? They will only separate themselves from Lesta Studio, a Sankt Petersburg branch of their company. The one that was running World of Warships... I wonder how will that work.
So, in another words, they separate themselves (or rather split in two), World of Warships and World of Tanks will be available in Russia in Belarus, but (most likely) under another parent company. What does that mean for users of World of Warships and World of Tanks? Nobody knows. So... just another, usual day of Wargaming news - you think you know something, but you really don’t.

After almost 2 years of empty promises and pointless roadmaps that never materialized it looks like CD Projekt RED finally gave up on saving the dumpster fire that Cyberpunk 2077 was. I mean they put ...
