Team 17 announced it's bringing its warfaring invertebrates to Xbox One and PS4 in a new game called Worms Battlegrounds. According to the British studio, Battlegrounds will be one of the first games in Microsoft's ID@Xbox self-publishing program, which is expected to make its debut close to March. The game's official release window is 2014.

Team 17 offered little to no info about the game itself in today's announcement, but we expect to learn more soon, given the imminence of ID@Xbox. Like a steeply launched homing missile, one thing that remains up in the air is a possible PC release; the game appeared on Steam's databases in November 2013.
