Approximately one year after its launch, Back 4 Blood has officially come to an end. Developer Turtle Rock Studios has announced their plans to move on to a new project. “What an amazing year 2022 was for us,” said by Turtle Rock. “First off, we wanted to thank all of you for making Back 4 Blood what it is today. With three expansions—Tunnels of Terror, Children of the Worm, and River of Blood—we’ve traveled on a fantastic adventure together beyond the walls of Fort Hope.
“This phase of our war against the Ridden now comes to a close. Turtle Rock Studios is actually pretty small for a studio making AAA games. We don’t have quite enough folks to continue working on Back 4 Blood content while we spin up another game—yes, another game! Given this, it’s time for us to put our heads down, get back in the lab, and get to work on the next big thing.”
