A big announcement from Turtle Rock Studios, developer of Left 4 Dead, was made today that potentially will leave many gamers upset. Turtle Rock Studios announced that Back 4 Blood will be joining the ranks of games like Cyberpunk 2077, Far Cry 6, and Halo Infinite and will be delayed.
Back 4 Blood’s release date was originally set for June 18th but will be available on October 12, 2021, 4 months later than expected. The internet is split on whether or not this is a bad thing as delays suck but ultimately, we all want a quality game. Of course, I’d be lying if I didn’t say that we too were on the fence but in the grand scheme of things its a good thing as Turtle Rock Studios has identified the need for the delay and the want to release a quality game. Surely, they don’t want a Cyberpunk 2077 debacle.
In better news, there will be a Back 4 Blood open beta sometime in the summer although no other information has been given so stay tuned here and at http://back4blood.com for more information.
