And while there may never be a Left 4 Dead 3, Turtle Rock shocked the world on Thursday with a surprise announcement. Interactive Entertainment, announcing its brand new title Back 4 Blood. "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", said Chris Ashton, Turtle Rock's co-founder.
The team is planning to initially release the game on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, but says that other options are still on the table.
The team couldn't commit to whether microtransactions would be in the final game but said it wasn't a focus of the development right now and promised "if we do have paid post-launch content, like microtransactions, we want to do something that the community feels good about".
The game will have a campaign and PVP modes, but these will not include battle royale. "We're growing the team considerably because we're stepping up to the biggest challenge in this studio's history". The Left 4 Dead games remain some of the best co-op shooters around and, while Vermintide scratches a similar itch, I prefer shooting the undead to those lovely Skaven rat boys. They might have failed with Evolve but with Back 4 Blood, they are going back to their roots and developing a game that made their name in the first place.
"We know this title has to stand out and we fully intend to make that happen", said Turtle Rock Studios co-founder and creative director Phil Robb.
