World of Tanks reaches 40m registered users

Wargaming credits recent uptick to the release of update 8.0

Online game developer Wargaming proudly announced today that its popular World of Tanks has reached a new milestone of 40 million registered users worldwide. Wargaming said that represents a doubling of the user base from earlier in the year.

The company also noted continued growth in the Russian market, as World of Tanks recently set a new record with over 500,000 players simultaneously on one game server. Wargaming believes its numbers will still see growth moving forward, thanks largely to the recent release of Update 8.0.
