Perfect World Entertainment and Turtle Rock Studios recently announced their partnership and the development of a new triple-A game IP for PC and console. The top secret free to play first-person shooter features intense online co-operative action, bringing Turtle Rock back to what it does best. Turtle Rock Studios is well-known for games such as Left 4 Dead and Evolve.
“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.” said Phil Robb, Co-founder of Turtle Rock Studios. “And with Perfect World Entertainment 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.”
“This one is going to be huge,” said Yoon IM, SVP, Global Publishing at Perfect World Entertainment. “We’ve been growing Perfect World Entertainment for about a decade now, always looking for strong developers to make cool games. We’re proud to work with developers like Cryptic, Tuque, Runic and Unknown Worlds. Partnering with Turtle Rock and adding its new IP to our portfolio is great. We look forward to fully supporting Turtle Rock as a publishing partner and can’t wait to show off their new game.”
Development on Turtle Rock’s new co-op title is in full swing. While a full reveal is currently to be determined, the company is ramping up and looking for new talent to join its ranks. There is currently no scheduled window for Closed Beta nor launch. Turtle Rock recently stopped content support for Evolve, presumably to focus on this mysterious co-op game.
