Never going to happen, sadly.
Honestly, at this point, who could make it and have it not suck? My hope was that if we got a western dev team to make a tank game we'd be set. We got OE with AW and from what we've heard of what they wanted to make it still would have been garbage even without Mail.ru being involved.
On top of that there's the unfortunate shift in gaming towards microtransactions/unfinished products and gambling replacing decent game mechanics. In a fantasy world where someone else did make a tank game we'd likely get more of the same BS that's the norm now - spend hundreds of hours or hundreds of dollars to get the game to what used to be a considered a finished product all the while with slot machine like aspects littered throughout to diminish what good players can do and to hook the mouthbreathers. No thanks.
