Rebuilt using Unreal Engine 4, the team from New World Interactive are bringing Insurgency to the consoles as Insurgency: Sandstorm. The game will feature a new story mode, the classic Insurgency multi-player and co-op modes. Insurgency: Sandstorm will also see a release on PC.
“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.” Jeremy Blum – Founder and Game Director of New World Interactive
The original Insurgency PC release sold over 2.3million copies. Insurgency: Sandstorm is due for release in 2017.
