WBIE and Turtle Rock Studios

Turtle Rock Studios, the development studio that created Left 4 Dead and who eventually brought us Left 4 Dead 2 and Evolve (but let's not talk about that one) is working on a new co-op FPS. And just like Left 4 Dead, this new title will also include plenty of zombies.

The game is called Back 4 Blood (I see what they did there) and it will be published by WBIE. It's a bit early to say how this one will turn out since a lot of the old Turtle Rock kind of merged with Valve for a while there. We'll obviously be keeping our eyes on this one though.

Turtle Rock has put up an FAQ that provides some answers to questions you've yet to ask. It includes details like that platforms Back 4 Blood will be released on (PC, XB1, and PS4). It also notes that while there isn't a price revealed yet, expect it to cost about the same as a typical "premium, AAA title."

That's pretty much all we know right now. There aren't even any screenshot to share yet, so expect this game to be very, very early in development.

BURBANK, CA – March 14, 2019 – Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and Turtle Rock Studios today announced Back 4 Blood, from the creators and development team behind the critically acclaimed, co-op phenomenon Left 4 Dead.
