A while ago, Project Tank
popped up on our radar for two reasons. First of all, it was a browser-based multiplayer tank-based combat simulator. Second, it bore a lot
of similarities to the existing
multiplayer tank-based combat simulator World of Tanks
, enough that Wargaming.net
brought out the copyright lawyers. A copyright infringement suit was filed today by Wargaming.net
, claiming that Project Tank
directly copies many elements of World of Tanks
and violates some existing patents.
has responded to these claims on the official site for the game
, claiming that Wargaming.net has engaged in "underhanded" actions to try to shut down the project. This marks the end of the closed beta for Project Tank
, which is promising open beta in approximately a month. You can take a look at the side-by-side comparison from before
and draw your own conclusions about whether Project Tank
is being unfairly accused or entirely fairly accused.
