Interactive Entertainment, Back 4 Blood will “advance the co-op zombie genre forward with innovative multiplayer gameplay” which sounds interesting according to the studios great resume on developing co-op shooters. Chris Ashton, Co-founder at Turtle Rock Studios, also published the following statement on their new announcement:
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, we also have some of the best teammates in the business at WBIE who understand our development process and are equally committed to our player-first mentality. We love being able to announce, so we can start working with the community right away.
