Turtle Rock, the studio behind Left 4 Dead and CS: Source, was bought and then closed by Valve in 2008 and re-opened as a new studio in 2009. Since then, the studio is preparing their debut game that will be published by THQ and as we just found out, it will be powered by Crytek’s CryEngine 3.
This new, unannounced project promises to be the most exciting and ambitious thing the team has ever attempted. Bold claims right? Well, these were the minds behind the original Left 4 Dead so they might have something really special in store for us.
The studio is currently looking for talented individuals to join our team. An engine programmer, tools programmer, network programmer, AI programmer and senior gameplay programmer are what the company needs right now. So if you are one of them, head over to Turtle Rock’s site.
Turtle Rock’s FPS game that will be centered around the multiplayer experience will most probably get released in 2013. Expect more news and an official announcement in 2012.
John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards."
