Phil Robb, co-founder of Turtle Rock Studios
“We are developing a new franchise set in an all new universe that leverages the style of gameplay our community loves and expects from Turtle Rock Studios. We’re focusing on what we do best – heart-pounding moment-to-moment online co-op FPS action. And with Perfect World Entertainment as our partner, we will always make sure that our players come first by listening to them and growing the game based on how they play and interact over what we hope are many years to come. We cannot wait to show them what we have in store.”
Yoon Im, SVP of global publishing at Perfect World Entertainment
“This one is going to be huge. We’ve been growing Perfect World Entertainment for about a decade now, always looking for strong developers to make cool games. We’re proud to work with developers like Cryptic, Tuque, Runic and Unknown Worlds. Partnering with Turtle Rock and adding its new IP to our portfolio is great. We look forward to fully supporting Turtle Rock as a publishing partner and can’t wait to show off their new game.”
