Turtle Rock Studios, the developer behind Left 4 Dead and Evolve, is partnering with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to release Back 4 Blood.
Back 4 Blood is co-op zombie FPS that will see the developer “going back to [its] roots and at the same time innovating on them.” Thanks to an FAQ for the game, we know that the game will include a campaign and PvP, but that’s all the information we have currently.
“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,” Chris Ashton, co-founder and design director at Turtle Rock Studios, said. “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.”
“We are thrilled to partner with the proven Turtle Rock Studios team on Back 4 Blood to advance the co-op zombie genre forward with innovative multiplayer gameplay,” David Haddad, President of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, added. “The talented team at Turtle Rock has been developing amazing games together for a long time, and this is a great opportunity to work with them to create a new gaming universe built specifically with the large co-op zombie shooter community in mind.”
Back 4 Blood is in development for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
