Wargaming announces new IP in built with Amazon game tech

World of Tanks developers partners with Frag Lab on "next generation" free-to-play shooter

Wargaming has today announced a partnership with Ukrainian developers Frag Lab to build a "next generation" free-to-player shooter.

The World of Tanks developer revealed it would be using nearly a dozen Amazon Web Services, Amazon GameLift, and the Amazon Lumberyard game engine.

Frag Lab is a 125-person Kiev-based studio, established by veterans from the Crysis franchise, Battlefield 2, and free-to-play shooter Warface.

Frag Lab CEO Maxim Dembik said Wargaming was "the obvious choice" as a publishing partner, given its success in the competitive free-to-play sphere.

"When Frag Lab approached us with their vision of what they wanted to develop, we felt that it perfectly matched our core values, and their passion was palpable," commented Wargaming product director Shahzad Khan.

"We knew by combining their experience working on a successful shooter with our unrivaled free-to-play expertise, together we could bring this vision to life."

Amazon's flagship game engine hasn't seen an awful lot of use yet, with The Grand Tour Game and Coffence being the only released titles built using the software.

However, Dembik described it as "the perfect fit for our vision."
