Turtle Rock Studios, who up until the release of Left 4 Dead operated as Valve South, have signed a deal for their next game with publisher THQ. The game is described as a "groundbreaking multiplayer experience from the makers of Left 4 Dead" and is set for release in 2013.
"Our quest to sign the best artists and work with the best talent continues," said Danny Bilson, EVP Core Games, THQ. "Turtle Rock Studios is responsible for one of the most original, critically acclaimed co-operative games of this generation, and we are incredibly excited to be working with them on their next project, which looks set to make a similar impact in the multiplayer space."
"We're thrilled to be working with THQ," said Phil Robb, COO, Turtle Rock Studios. "This project is the most ambitious thing we've ever attempted, and we're inspired by the support THQ has shown to help us realize that vision. We're going to take the first person shooter experience to a whole new level, and we can't wait to show the game for the first time in the months ahead."
The new game from Turtle Rock Studios will not be shown at E3 but we're told to expect a full reveal at a later date.
