Back 4 Blood Support is Ending as Turtle Rock Shifts to Next Game

Back 4 Blood developer Turtle Rock Studios says it’s shifting focus to its next game which means all support for the zombie co-op shooter will shut down. All post-launch development of Back 4 Blood will cease including future updates. However, the studio assured fans that the game will continue to operate but just won’t receive any new content or updates down the line.

In a statement posted on its website, Turtle Rock Studios claimed that it simply lacked the resources and development power to continue working on Back 4 Blood. The studio is currently working on its next game, but this means that those valuable resources will also need to be shifted to the unannounced project.

An excerpt from the statement published by Turtle Rock reads:

“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.”

Back 4 Blood originally launched in October 2021 to a divisive reception. Some praised the game’s visuals and gameplay that echoed its spiritual successor, Left 4 Dead, but most didn’t feel confident that it had longevity or enough appeal to make as large of an impact as the Left 4 Dead series. Turns out most fans were correct. Not even a couple of years later, the studio is now ceasing development of the game as it leaps to its next project.

Back 4 Blood is available for both PlayStation, Xbox and PC users via the PlayStation Plus Extra and Premium Tiers as well as Xbox Game Pass. The game’s last expansion, Tunnels of Terror, was released earlier this year and featured two new playable characters and additional content.
