Back 4 Blood Now In Maintenance Mode As TurtleRock Works On A New Game

After just over a year in operation and three expansions, Back 4 Blood will no longer be getting new content as the co-op zombie shooter transitions to maintenance mode. Turtle Rock’s decision to end post-launch support for the game isn’t because the game is dying (it’s not), but because they need the manpower to work on another game.

“Turtle Rock Studios is actually pretty small for a studio making AAA games,” admitted the team. “We don’t have quite enough folks to continue working on Back 4 Blood content while we spin up another game – yes, another game! Given this, it’s time for us to put our heads down, get back in the lab, and get to work on the next big thing.”

Despite the lack of new content going forward, Turtle Rock assures the community that the game will remain online on all available platforms and will continue to be offered on PlayStation Plus for Extra and Premium tier subscribers as well as on Xbox Game Pass. The game’s social media accounts, including Reddit and Discord, will also remain operational for the foreseeable future.

Meanwhile, there’s still a whole host of new content for players to enjoy following the launch of the River of Blood expansion last month.
