Title: Turtle Rock Studios is Back 4 Blood
Post by: ProdigySim on March 14, 2019, 10:11:26 am
Left 4 Dead 3 Confirmed? Not quite, but it's possibly the next best thing for L4D fans.

The orginal creators of the Left 4 Dead series, Turtle Rock Studios, are have just announced a new zombie coop FPS game in cooperation with Warner Bros. Interactive, "Bad 4 Blood".

Official Press Release Here (https://talk.turtlerockstudios.com/t/warner-bros-interactive-entertainment-and-turtle-rock-studios-announce-back-4-blood/112397)

The title of the game is an obvious reference to the original series, and the press release doesn't shy away from comparing the the game to Left 4 Dead.

“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,” said Chris Ashton, Co-founder and Design Director, Turtle Rock Studios.

The press release also linked an Official FAQ (https://talk.turtlerockstudios.com/t/back-4-blood-announce-faq/112400) about the game and this announcement, filled with a lot of light but important details. Notably, the game is going to be a brand new IP, unrelated to L4D, and the game WILL include PVP modes.

So, with little more than a name and a few promises, why the early announcement? The FAQ covers this, too:

With so little to tell us, why are you announcing now?

    Back 4 Blood is a hugely ambitious project and we need the best of the best to come join us. As an independent studio, we have to announce early to let our industry know we’re up to something big. If you are in the video game business and you are looking to make real contributions to a brand new AAA IP developed in Southern California, check us out. Our job listings are here with more to come in the next year: https://www.turtlerockstudios.com/careers (https://www.turtlerockstudios.com/careers) 104.


So, there you have it. Could this be the spiritual successor Left 4 Dead needs? Just another zombie game? Or L4D HD Remake 2.5 final mix?

As a fan of both Left 4 Dead and Evolve, I'm hyped as hell, and I can't wait to see what the studio has in store.

Welp, at least it's not with 2K.
Still though, not hyped for something so far in the future, never again.

Let's just hope it's not another battle royale game with some gimmick. :/

They specifically said it wouldn't be a battle royale or contain a battle royale mode.
