    Team17 announces new IP Flockers | Latest news from the game development industry | Develop

    Not everyday we get a new Team 17 game, in fact it seems worms has taken over the studio for the last 10 years. Here's hoping it comes to X1 as well as PS.

    Worms creator now working on new brand revealed during PlayStation Open Day

    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.

    Hmmm, curious, I want more details! Hope it's good, although a bit tired now after all these years Team 17 really came up with one of the greatest lighthearted multiplayer games ever with Worms. Let's hope they can do it again.

    Worms creator???????

    I do think that sites should try and get the facts right, especially the opening sentence. Worms was an idea by some regular joe who sent it in for some competition and in the end it was developed by Team17, the did not "create" it.

    Got this from the HK store last night - good little game for around £7, controls are quite easy once you get used to them aswell.

    It is a good little game, virtually identical to lemmings but that is no bad thing
