Turtle Rock Studios has been keeping their head down ever since Evolve went the way it was. But now they are back
They have announced that they are now working on a new co-op zombie shooter, a spiritual successor to their big hit Left 4 Dead. And it’s clear given the title: Back 4 Blood.
Little is revealed aside from the developers have teamed up with publishers WB Games. There is PVP in the works but not a battle royale. Instead, this is focused on making a AAA co-op zombie shooter.
This is not the free-to-play co-op shooter announced back in 2016. The FAQ mentioned that “both parties decided to move on”.
“It’s hard to overstate what an awesome opportunity this is,” said Chris Ashton, Co-founder and Design Director, Turtle Rock Studios.“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,”
No release date has been given, but Back 4 Blood is targeting a release on the PS4, PC (Steam) and Xbox One.
