'Left 4 Dead' Creators Debut New Zombie Co-Op Game, 'Back 4 Blood'

But while a third Left 4 Dead game isn't officially on the cards, Warner Bros. today announced what is possibly might be the next best thing: a new co-op zombie shooter from the makers of the original Left 4 Dead.

There is no release window just yet, but Turtle Rock has already announced that it is focusing on a triple-A price point across PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Yep, the company has announced a new co-op zombie project in Back 4 Blood, which they are working on with publisher WB Interactive.

The developers behind the original Left 4 Dead are making a new spiritual successor, and they're committed to one-upping L4D in every way. "This is a great opportunity to work with [Turtle Rock] to create a new gaming universe built specifically with the large co-op zombie shooter community in mind", said David Haddad, president of Warner Bros.

"The talented team at Turtle Rock has been developing fantastic games together for a long time, and this is a great opportunity to work with them to create a new gaming universe built specifically with the large co-op zombie shooter community in mind", Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment for Back 4 Blood.


Naturally the studio is excited, with Co-founder and Design Director Chris Ashton saying 'It's hard to overstate what an awesome opportunity this is. "We know that's a tall order", said Turtle Rock co-founder and Creative Director Phil Robb. It calls "Back 4 Blood" the "biggest challenge in this studio's history". "We know this title has to stand out and we fully intend to make that happen". After a couple of years of hibernation, the team behind Left 4 Dead is back and this time they're sticking to their guns with their latest game, Back 4 Blood. It does confirm that there will be PvP and a campaign, and it won't be a battle royale.

The studio chose to announce the game so soon because it is looking for community feedback early on in the development process.

This may smack of caution, but remember it's the studio that made Evolve, a game that was heavily criticised by players for the amount of post-launch content released for the 4v1 multiplayer game.

We also want to hear from you all about what you think about the games we've made in the past and what you are looking forward to in the future.
