New World Interactive and Focus Home Interactive have announced that Insurgency: Sandstorm will be headed to both consoles and PC in 2017.
The shooter will be “completely rebuilt from the ground up in Unreal Engine 4.” The developer said that gamers can expect to immerse themselves in a “gritty, visceral combat experience that delivers first-person gunplay as immersive as it gets.”
The game will feature a host of “diverse firearms” and a new story mode as well as the original game’s classic multiplayer and cooperative gameplay.
“We are very excited about working with Focus on Insurgency: Sandstorm,” Founder and Game Director of New World Interactive Jeremy Blum said in a statement, “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.”
“We are very proud to partner with American studio New World Interactive,” President of Focus Home Interactive Cédric Lagarrigue added, “Insurgency is one of the most praised and played First Person Shooters on PC. We are excited to support NWI in this new adventure, and we will do everything we can to make Insurgency: Sandstorm a hit on consoles and PC in 2017.”
