World of Tanks, which is currently en route to Xbox 360, could come to Xbox One, Wargaming CEO Victor Kislyi told IGN at Gamescom.

“I see no reason why we won’t eventually do next-gen,” Kislyi told IGN. “But first, let them come out. Second, let them get to a meaningful user base.

“In free-to-play, you have to have millions and millions of players. On the PC, we have 77 million registered users worldwide. More than 75 percent of our players never pay us anything. We monetize only a small percentage who deliberately, from time to time, give us something in the range of the price of a movie ticket.

“So one million, say, is not enough of a user base for a free-to-play game. However, let them come out. There are no tangible restrictions.”

Kislyi added that the company has “no reason not to work with [Microsoft] in the future,” but that the team first wants to focus on polishing World of Tank‘s Xbox 360 release.
