A job listing by developers of Left 4 Dead and Evolve, Turtle Rock Studios, has outed that they are working on a new game. To add to the speculation, that game is set to be part of an already existing franchise.
Turtle Rock Studios have a great pedigree of online games. Left 4 Dead is a classic of the co-op space, and its quality is still enjoyed today. Evolve, while hampered by microtransactions and a whimpering end, was a decent game with plenty of ideas that was enjoyed by plenty throughout its time.

There aren’t many other clues as to what the game is or which franchise it is for, but it does make reference to it being a “modern FPS” and “competitive”.

It’s hard to even speculate what this would be for, as we don’t even have a publisher name yet, but the developer is known for clever spins on FPS. I’ll certainly be here for seeing what they are cooking up.
