World of Tanks behemoth Wargaming is funding a new mobile game studio, with the aim to experiment in the mobile space as an entity separate to Wargaming's console development. Talking to Venturebeat, the new studio's head David Bluhm, who has previously founded mobile studio Z2, noted that the as-of-yet unnamed company will be entirely funded by Wargaming. "We think mobile games is still a relatively new space with massive upside, he said. "Mobile is ripe for innovative and new core game mechanics." Other members of this new studio include Joe McDonagh, previously of Blue Manchu and EA PopCap, and Julian Chunovic, formerly of Z2 and Nintendo. Although Wargaming is yet to confirm its involvement with this new studio, Bluhm says that more information will be disclosed within the coming weeks.
