Brit game maker turned indie publisher, Team 17, have announced they have partnered with Playtonic to publish 3D platformer Yooka-Laylee.
“From the very start we said that we’d welcome only a partner that could genuinely improve the creation of our game, while respecting the independence and creative autonomy of our development team,” said Gavin Price, Creative Lead at Playtonic. “Team17’s 25-year industry-leading expertise will significantly benefit Yooka-Laylee in a myriad of ways,” he added.
Team 17 have also announced Worms WMD, the next instalment of their hit franchise, for Xbox One and PC in 2016. No love for Sony for some reason.
Worms WMD features a fresh, brand new look 2D cartoon-inspired worm as well as gorgeous hand drawn landscapes. For the first time ever players will be able to use exciting new vehicles and even enter buildings which will add new strategic elements of gameplay to the traditional wormy warfare.
Just in case there was a tiny bit of milk left in their cash cow, Team 17 have also announced Worms 4 for mobile devices, coming this August.
