Left 4 Dead creator’s new “groundbreaking multiplayer experience” to be published by THQ

Publishing house THQ has announced that they’ve sealed the deal to publish Turtle Rock Studios’, the studio behind Left 4 Dead, next project.

Details are severly lacking though as the project isn’t due until 2013. Don’t expect an E3 showing, either; the project will be revealed at “a later date”.

The only thing we have to go by for now are a few words of hype. According to THQ, we can look forward to an “original, groundbreaking multiplayer experience.”

“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.”
