Turtle Rock Studios’ hit game Left 4 Dead has still not been dethroned from the zombie genre even after a decade. Turtle Rock is returning with a brand new title called “Back 4 Blood”, a co-op zombie shooter for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and next-generation consoles with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment as the publisher.
Right now, we know just a handful of things about Back 4 Blood in a post made by a community manager at Turtle Rock Studios Forum. The game is a co-op zombie shooter with a campaign and PvP elements.
Warner Bros. claims the game will “advance the co-op zombie genre forward with innovative multiplayer gameplay,”
Back 4 Blood design director Chris Ashton expressed his excitement about the project by saying
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
Last year, we saw Turtle Rock Studios post a job on Linked In where they were looking to hire someone who will work on a ”World Known Franchise”. This initially led everyone to think that a sequel to the famous L4D3 is in the making. It is very likely that the job posting was for Back 4 Blood.
Back 4 Blood’s development for next-generation consoles, PS5, and Xbox Anaconda, is also exciting. Not a lot of developers have acknowledged working on projects for the new hardware such as the new Xbox or PS5.
Phil Robb, Co-founder and Creative Director at Turtle Rock Studios, said
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,
Fans of the Left 4 Dead are excited to see what Back 4 Blood has in store for them.
Back 4 Blood is in development for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and next-generation consoles.
