Turtle Rock Studios
that it's working on a new game. The bad news is that this means
an end to active development on Back 4 Blood
. This does not mean the
co-op shooter is left for dead, but it does mean no new content is in the works.
There are no details about the new game, but the developer says it may be a bit
quieter for a while as they work on it:
What an amazing year 2022 was for
us. 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
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

Back 4 Blood will continue to operate, of course. In fact, Back 4 Blood is
currently offered on PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium tiers and available as
part of Xbox Game Pass. You’ll also still find us hanging out in the
SUBREDDIT and on
DISCORD, as well as our
WEBSITE because we love interacting with
you and talking about our games.
While we may be a bit quieter in the short-term, we promise that we’ll be Back,
bigger, bolder and better than ever!
