Naval MMO 'World of Warships' announced for Xbox One

World of Warships is a free-to-play naval massively multiplayer online game (MMO) from Wargaming. You may recognize the developer from titles like World of Tanks and World of Warplanes. As expected, World of Warships shares similar gameplay elements with the two projects. There are several classes of ships to choose from and the game still revolves around team-based matches. World of Warships launched on PC in 2015 but it was unclear until now whether it would come to consoles.

Today, Wargaming announced that World of Warships will be coming to Xbox One in 2019. It's unclear when the title will hit the system though because no concrete release date was provided. Wargaming issued the following statement on Reddit alongside the reveal.

With extreme thrill I can finally answer one of the questions I had to ignore many times… Our new game World of Warships: Legends is announced on Xbox and PS4… You've been a great support and source of feedback... for our beloved PC child. Now, I fully acknowledge that Reddit is community-driven, so I guess it's up to you if this wonderful community will unite the most engaged players from both platforms. But let me just say that I hope it will… let us all wish the new project a wonderful journey!

Hopefully World of Warships will be a polished MMO on console. Just like World of Tanks, the game is expected to support Xbox One X. We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more.
