Wargaming.net is a privately held strategy game development company founded in 1998. In early 2000 Wargaming.net launched its first commercial game - DBA Online, which developed into intensive online community. DBA Online is a niche game, oriented mostly to miniature wargamers and devoted fans of ancient and medieval periods.
In November, 2007 Wargaming.net carried out a merger with Arise, an independent PC game developer. Currently the united company operates one of the biggest game development studios in Eastern Europe. This merger enhanced Wargaming.net's position as the leading strategy and RPG developer. With all resources almost doubled, the company is able to put more energy into creating cutting-edge proprietary technology and building new brands.
