" Publisher and developer Wargaming has decided to close its R&D division, App2Top reported. "

 

So is this going to impact the development of WOWS? How will it if it does?

Sounds like a cost saving type deal probably leading to even more copy pasta.

R&D can mean work on new technologies and new games, not necessarily on specific technologies of existing games.  It may be that they are focusing resources in the individual game teams.

I don't really know of course, but the companies where I worked R&D didn't really work on existing product or their technologies.

How quickly we forget that Lesta studios is responsible for development of this game?   This would possibly affect World of tanks?..  WG does not work WOWS in house...  I think this studio is still stand alone despite being owned by WG?

How sure are you that its just tanks? They did not specify which games were intertwined with the restructuring.

Lesta is still operated, since purchase as a separate entity to best of my knowledge? .. original Wargaming development team is Minsk, which worked WOT?    

Here's translated original source article, seems more of a dollars and cents move..  They have a lot of separate teams with all their acquisitions..

Lesta could still have been using their input and resources in some way even if not directly affiliated.

Would be interesting to see if this had to do with their sourcing of OG material ( sifting through blue prints and finding napkins).  Or if this is in regards to developing new game ideas.

Well I am guessing this could be part of their historical research division.   Say guys like Nicholas Moran aka "The Chieftain".   He did comment on historical ships and their research from time to time.  Also he is the infamous source of "there will never subs in WoWs".

Being sketchy, it looks like they are moving away from being direct Developers into a Publisher oriented approach while letting subsidiaries and third party studios take care of the development aspects.
