Frag Lab is a 125-strong studio, based in Kiev, established by a team that previously worked on the Crysis franchise, Battlefield 2 and most recently, Warface, a free-to-play online first-person shooter.
 

“When Frag Lab approached us with their vision of what they wanted to develop, we felt that it perfectly matched our core values, and their passion was palpable,” states Shahzad Khan, Product Director, Wargaming. “We knew by combining their experience working on a successful shooter with our unrivaled free-to-play expertise, together we could bring this vision to life.”
 

“Having Wargaming as a publishing partner was the obvious choice for us; they have a great wealth of experience in delivering successful titles to players worldwide,” states Maxim Dembik, Frag Lab CEO. “We started this ambitious project from scratch with nothing but our collective knowledge, and this gave us the opportunity to choose any technology we wanted. We’re always looking to embrace new tech and we’re glad we did: Amazon Lumberyard is the perfect fit for our vision.”
 

Amazon Game Tech gives developers everything they need to create and connect amazing games by bringing together solutions from across Amazon. Wargaming and Frag Lab are using Amazon GameLift to operate and scale their multiplayer servers alongside nearly a dozen AWS products like Amazon Route 53, Simple Storage Service (S3), and Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS), and is creating the game with the Amazon Lumberyard game engine.
 

“Amazon is obsessed with helping game developers be successful at every stage of development, and we’re excited to work with Wargaming and Frag Lab as they build, scale, and operate this new project globally,” said Brian Taptich, Vice President, Amazon Game Tech. “Wargaming and Frag Lab are known for high-fidelity, low-latency multiplayer games that are insanely fun, and we can’t wait to see what they build using Amazon Game Tech.”
