Perfect World Entertainment announced today that they are publishing a new IP which will be developed by the Left 4 Dead and Evolve developer Turtle Rock Studios. The game is detailed to be an AAA title for consoles, but not much more is really known at this moment.
The game is dubbed as a "free to play first-person shooter features intense online co-operative action". It sounds like the new game will feature a similar setup as Evolve 2.0, the free to play version of Evolve after initially launched as a paid game. The excitement is incredibly high, as Yoon Im of Perfect World commented by saying:
“This one is going to be huge. 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.”
Phil Cobb of Turtle Rock said that this will be an all new game different than what they have done before. According to Cobb, this will be a "new franchise set in an all new universe that leverages the style of gameplay our community loves and expects from Turtle Rock Studios."
Further details on the game have yet to be revealed, but both Turtle Rock and Perfect World are looking to bring talent on to help with the game, which is currently in "full swing" development. Perfect World initially began as a developer but recently began publishing games.
