Worms developer Team 17 looks like it will put its turn-based series on ice for a while, following the mixed reaction to latest release Worms: Clan Wars. This doesn’t include Worms: Battlegrounds however, which is already in development for next-gen formats.


Speaking with Strategy Informer, Team 17’s Business Development head Nick Clarkson said, “Sadly not as well as we’d hoped. As a game it’s probably the most complete version of Worms out there, at least on PC. Certainly post-launch the support for it was very good, there was bugs here and there and the team kept on top of it.”

“We’ve purposefully moved away from Worms for this year, apart from Battlegrounds (the next-gen version ofWorms) which was already in the pipeline, just so we can regroup and see what we can do. Worms is 20 next year, so we’re thinking what can we do for a Worms anniversary?”

The studio recently announced its new IP Flockers, which looks like a new take on the Lemmings format. Check out all the details, screens and a trailer here.

Worms: Clan Wars currently holds a Metacritic rating of 73.
