The makers of Left4Dead announce a new partnership and a new game on the way
You may have heard of a little title called Left4Dead which only revolutionised the zombie and co-op action genres when it first launched back in 2008, with a slicker and sharper sequel following the next year. Now developers Turtle Rock Studios are back with the promise of a new title which is set to change the goalposts once again for multiplayer.
THQ has just announced that it has signed the next title from Turtle Rock Studios. The as yet un-named title is scheduled for release in calendar 2013.
"Our quest to sign the best artists and work with the best talent continues" said Danny Bilson, EVP Core Games, THQ. "Turtle Rock Studios is responsible for one of the most original, critically acclaimed co-operative games of this generation, and we are incredibly excited to be working with them on their next project, which looks set to make a similar impact in the multiplayer space."
"We're thrilled to be working with THQ," said Phil Robb, COO, Turtle Rock Studios. "This project is the most ambitious thing we've ever attempted, and we're inspired by the support THQ has shown to help us realize that vision. We're going to take the first person shooter experience to a whole new level, and we can't wait to show the game for the first time in the months ahead."
Turtle Rock Studios' new title will not be shown at E3 2011, but gamers can expect a full reveal at a later date.
