Wargaming, the studio behind massively multiplayer online games World of Tanks, World of Warplanes and World of Warships, acquired Day 1 Studios, developer of FEAR 3, to form Wargaming West, according the studio's new website.

The $20 million acquisition is designed to bring Wargaming into the console development sphere.

"The move into console game development is a huge step for Wargaming, as we begin to expand our presence into new platforms," said Victor Kislyi, CEO of Wargaming. "We are looking forward to sharing the fruits of our labor soon."

The website lists four positions open for the Chicago-area studio, including a QA Game Testers, IT Administrator, Software Engineer and Modeler and Prop Artist.

In August 2012, Wargaming acquired middleware developer BigWorld. The $45 million acquisition brought the Australia-based company that provided the secure server technology that underlies the company's MMOs into Wargaming's corporate fold.
