Left 4 Dead Creators Now Working For THQ

Turtle Rock Studios, the group responsible for the creation and much of the development of Left 4 Dead, has "got the band back together" after shifting away from Valve's ownership and will be releasing its next game for publisher THQ.

Having worked with Valve for years, first on the Xbox version of Counter-Strike and then Left 4 Dead, Turtle Rock was first acquired by Valve, renamed Valve South and then, after some staff movement, quietly just... faded away into the night as Valve's main studio worked on Left 4 Dead 2 by its lonesome.

Well, now much of the original staff is back at a revamped Turtle Rock, and THQ has picked up the publishing rights to its new, major title currently slated for a 2013 release.

It's some kind of multiplayer game, and is being shown at E3, so you won't have much longer to find out exactly what it is.


    Could be worse. THQ isn't really one of the "Satan" companies.

    That might explain the lack of attention L4D/L4D2 were getting, unlike other Valve games

    THQ = Aussies pay 200% from most outlets.

      Video games = Aussies pay 200% from most outlets.

        Game Retailers = No Australia, We are the cheapest way to buy your games and you have no alternative. None. You Pirate. PIRATE!
