Turtle Rock Studios, the talented developer behind the acclaimed Left 4 Dead series, and Warner Bros. Entertainment have today announced a new co-op shooter titled Back 4 Blood.
Built from the ground up, Turtle Rock Studios states Back 4 Blood will be an original, premium title; bringing with it the best of what the zombie shooter genre has to offer and marrying it with new features and state-of-the-art technology.
While nothing much is known about Back 4 Blood at this moment, Turtle Rock is excited to be working on the project.
“It’s hard to overstate what an awesome opportunity this is. We get to return to a genre that was born in our studio with over ten years of additional experience and zombie ideas racked up in our brains,” said Chris Ashton, Co-founder and Design Director, Turtle Rock Studios. “We also have some of the best teammates in the business at WBIE who understand our development process and are equally committed to our player-first mentality. We love being able to announce, so we can start working with the community right away.”
For anyone concerned that Back 4 Blood will be a rip-off of the Left 4 Dead series, worry not, it looks like the team is working on pushing forward and coming up with something new.
“We are not resting on any past laurels. Our goal is to take all we’ve learned and push forward. We know that’s a tall order,” said Phil Robb, Co-founder and Creative Director, Turtle Rock Studios. “We’re growing the team considerably because we’re stepping up to the biggest challenge in this studio’s history. We know this title has to stand out and we fully intend to make that happen.”
At the moment we have no details on when the game will release or on what platforms, so keep an eye out for more information as it is made available.
