Free-to-play online computer game developer and publisher Wargaming is putting its money where its mouth is, as the saying goes. The company has announced it will be financially supporting three key open-source development foundations. The Linux Software Foundation, the Django Software Foundation, and the Wikimedia Foundation will all receive such support.
Primarily known for gaming titles such as World of Tanks, Wargaming utilizes a wide array of open-source technologies to power their successful gaming titles. Corporately, Wargaming strives to support those technologies that the company regularly leverages, not only to support existing development, but also to help grow and evolve those technologies for future use.
“Wargaming relies heavily on a number of different open-source technologies to help us create our legendary MMO universe, whether it’s using Linux to power our servers, Django to build our web project frameworks or Wikimedia to help us in our research efforts,” said Maksim Melnikau, Solution Architect at Wargaming. “As a company, we’d like to say thank you to all the developers, testers and users who’ve helped create these awesome tools and that we’re extremely honored to hopefully help them continue their great work moving into the future.”
Wargaming found its initial success in 2003 with its turn-based strategy computer game Massive Assault. Currently, the company is working on two upcoming PC titles, World of Warplanes and World of Warships, and mobile game World of Tanks Blitz.
