Left 4 Dead, Evolve devs working on a new unannounced IP

Turtle Rock Studios is working on an 'unannounced AAA IP' for PS4, Xbox One and PC...and it probably won't be Left 4 Dead 3

The studio that brought us games like Left 4 Dead and Evolve is working on a fresh new AAA game for PS4, Xbox One and PC.




Turtle Rock Studios has posted up new job listings for a Narrative Director, an Animation Programmer, and a Senior Rendering Programmer to work on a brand new cross-platform AAA game. Since the project is listed as an "unannounced new IP" we probably won't see Left 4 Dead 3 in the pipeline.


"We are searching for a Narrative Director to help shape the entire narrative structure of our upcoming new AAA game for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4. The Narrative Director will work closely with our Creative Director and Head Writer to create and oversee compelling stories, characters, and content that form the backbone of the game's story."


"Join our exceptional development team as a Rendering Programmer on an unannounced game targeting the PS4 and Xbox One. The job will include developing new shaders and post-processing effects, extending existing rendering features to meet project goals, and resolving cross-platform issues. The employee will work extensively on helping the content team properly utilize console hardware."


Considering Evolve ultimately failed to catch on, I'm surprised Turtle Rock is gambling on yet another IP. We could possibly see an official announcement at E3 2016, and it'll be interesting to see what the Left 4 Dead devs kick up next.
