Team17 Taking a Break from Worms, Focusing on New IP

Posted on August 6, 2013 AT 01:49pm

Worms developer Team17 will be taking a break from their studio-defining series to explore new ideas, lead designer Gavin Hood informed IGN.

“This is kind of a big, last Worms hurrah for now, and I think I can say that you’ll probably see a new IP from the company in the next few years,” Hood told IGN. “I assume we’re looking [at next-gen]. I mean, we’ve got next-gen dev kits and that, but I don’t know what we’re planning on doing.”

According to Hood, Team17 is far from done with Worms.

“We’re not planning on releasing another Worms game for a while,” said Hood. “We’re going to focus on this [new IP].”

Three Worms-related releases remain on the horizon: Worms Collection for PS3 and Xbox 360 (which bundles Worms, Worms 2: armageddon, and Worms: Ultimate Mayhem), due out August 31; Worms Revolution Extreme for PS Vita, due out by summer’s end as well; and Worms: Clan Wars for PC, which drops next week on August 15.
