Developers Team17 have announced that they are currently working on a brand new IP, named Flockers.
The news was announced during the Playstation Open Day, by Team17′s Managing Director Debbie Bestwick. The official announcement is due next week, where we’ll find out more details surrounding the game.
Bestwick claims that Flockers is “the most important game [Team17 has] worked on in over a decade.” Team17 have recently moved into more of a publisher role, but this new direction will give them a chance to show off their developing chops.
Team17 are most famous for their development of the Worms series, which has had countless iterations over the past two decades. Flockers will be the team’s first new IP in over ten years, and they’re apparently pumping in a lot of investment.
No news as to what the game will actually be about yet, but we’re definitely getting a steampunk vibe from the logo design.
