Team17 has lifted the lid on a brand new IP, Develop can reveal.
The Worms developer is currently working on a game entitled Flockers.
The firm announced last year that it hasn't created a new IP for more than a decade and that it is investing heavily in it now.
The new franchise was revealed by Team17 MD Debbie Bestwick during today’s PlayStation Open Day in Royal Leamington Spa. It will be officially announced next week.
"This is the most important game we've worked on in over a decade," she said.
Team17 has repositioned itself in recent years as a digital publisher, but this move reiterates that it is still dedicated to games development – and not just on more iterations of Worms.
Bestwick didn’t offer any more information on the new IP but judging by the logo, we’re guessing Steampunk and Team17’s love of dangerous sheep are both central to the brand.
