Sega CEO Hajime Satomi says he wants to improve the quality of their games moving forward. That could mean a lot of things. It's nice to hear, but what they do next with their games is the real answer.
Worms Battlegrounds Coming To Xbox One and PS4
Team 17 announced that they will be bringing their long-running Worms series to PS4 and Xbox One. The series is making its first move to next-gen, and will be one of the first titles to use Microsoft’s new self-publishing service ID@Xbox.
A depressingly low number of details has been released on the game. We have a logo, and we know that the title will release sometime this year. That’s about it. Worms has always been a multiplayer-focused title, so it will be interesting to see what direction they take the franchise, and what they mean by Battlegrounds? Will this be a new 3D title, or will it mark a return to their 2D roots? More importantly, could we finally see a real-time Worms game?
If nothing else, it will be interesting to see how Team 17 feels about the ID@Xbox initiative. Developers seemed tentatively optimistic about the program when it was announced, so we will see what happens.
