Indie developer and publisher Team17 has confirmed a new Worms game is on the way.
As announced on Twitter (below), the new title will hit later this year – though no release date has yet been given. The publisher has promised further details are on the way.
"Get ready for Worms like you've never played before," said Team17.
"Things are getting real in 2020 – more details coming soon."
The last game in the series to be released was Worms W.M.D in 2016 — it came to both PC and consoles. It was a return to the 2D turn-based style the franchise was best known for.
At the start of the year, Team17 acquired Yippee Entertainment. The reason for the acquisition was to accelerate the firm's recruitment plans in the North West in the UK. In November 2019, the British company increased its revenue expectations. This followed the firm seeing its revenue double year-on-year in H1 2019.
