"But first, let them come out," says Wargaming boss.

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.

    Edit: Ignore this, I commented before reading the article. It would be nice if the moderators can delete this post for me (since deleting a Disqus post would simply turns it into a “guest” post.)

      ? Just like he said in the article: “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.

      Established Userbase. Next-gen does not have one yet.

        I didn’t read the article at the time and commented too soon (it’s a bad habit), and even after I did (like half a day later), I didn’t feel like logging in and editing it, so I left it like that. I figure since no one else bothered to comment, it wasn’t worth the trouble.
