Worms dev Team17 reveals new IP 'Flockers'

Worms developer Team17 revealed at the PlayStation Open Day in Royal Leamington Spa in Warwickshire, Englandthat that a new intellectual property named Flockers is in the works. The developer is expected to officially reveal the game next week, according to Develop.

"This is the most important game we've worked on in over a decade," Team17 Managing Director Debbie Bestwick said, perhaps alluding to the fact that Flockers will be the first new IP for the developer in more than ten years.

Team17 is best known for its long-running Worms series, which will see the addition of Worms: Battlegrounds this year on PS4 and Xbox One. Team17 is also in the process of positioning itself as a publisher for the first time in nearly two decades, as it will fund the development of Just a Pixel's stealthy PC game Light and prison breakout sim The Escapists.
