Turtle Rock Studios, of Left 4 Dead and Evolve fame, have revealed that they are working on a new IP set for 2018. Originally published over at gameindustry.biz, Phill Robb of Turtle Rock Studios stated:
“We are developing a new franchise set in an all new universe that leverages the style of gameplay our community loves and expects from Turtle Rock Studios. We’re focusing on what we do best – heart-pounding moment-to-moment online co-op FPS action. And with Perfect World as our partner, we will always make sure that our players come first by listening to them and growing the game based on how they play and interact over what we hope are many years to come. We cannot wait to show them what we have in store.”
While there is no specific information, it does look like Turtle Rock is going to be hyper-focused on the longevity of this particular game. What will keep players interested? After all, Evolve was a highly anticipated multiplayer game that just couldn’t keep players interested in the long run (although it was a very good game, this writer thinks). Hopefully this new IP will have the staying-power of the Left 4 Dead series.
