Please note that a decision to publish a game involves different stages depending, among others, on the state of development of the game, funding requirements, publishing integration and legal review. If you game is selected, we will contact you with our feedback and admit you to our Mobile Publishing Program.

During the first stage of the Program, we may provide you with access to the Services from Wargaming accounts for up to six months so you can continue to develop your game using the Services as requested by and as hosted by Wargaming. You will be encouraged to improve your game and reach certain target KPIs.

The use of the Services is subject to the terms and conditions of their respective providers, not guaranteed and can be stopped at any time.

If you reach the target KPIs during the first stage, you may be admitted to the second stage of the Program that will last for up to another six months. Your access to the Services may be extended subject to the same terms, and new KPIs will be set for you together with a potential, dedicated Project Manager, test campaign and development funding. Please be aware that if you pass the first stage and decide to continue your participation in the Program, Wargaming will receive a right of first refusal in relation to publishing your game. Terms and conditions of the second stage will be set out in a separate term sheet between you and us.
