Focus Home Interactive and New World Interactive has announced Insurgency: Sandstorm.
Rebuilt in Unreal Engine 4, the new game “expands and enhances” the shooter. New World founder Jeremy Blum added:
“We are very excited about working with Focus on Insurgency: Sandstorm. We believe there’s a great opportunity for Insurgency on next-gen consoles and that aligning with a strong publisher will allow us to best leverage this. Considering our background, it was not easy finding a publisher we felt compatible with. We decided to work with Focus because they understand our game and they believe in our vision. In addition, they bring a wealth of knowledge when it comes to shipping console games and marketing to that audience.”
The say it will be a “a gritty, visceral combat experience that delivers first-person gunplay as immersive as it gets”. It will come with a new story mode, co-op gameplay, and it’s a new chapter for the series which has sold 2.3 million copies and started out as a Half-Life 2 mod.
