After previously only being well-known as the developer of the Worms series
, Team17 have put themselves front and center in recent times as both a developer and publisher. They have been the ones responsible for bringing popular titles like The Escapists
to Xbox One and can also boast the recent double launch of OlliOlli2: XL Edition
and NOT A HERO: SUPER SNAZZY EDITION
Team17 has confirmed they will be at E3 from June 14th to 16th, showcasing the following games:
Team17 is helping Playtonic Games, the team of Banjo-Kazooie
vets, bring their Kickstarter-funded platformer and spiritual successor to Banjo
to Xbox One. We already saw more screenshots and gameplay
on Monday, as well as the news the game is being pushed to 2017. Hopefully E3 brings more positive news to fans eagerly anticipating Yooka-Laylee
It's Team17, of course we're going to see Worms
. We've been seeing plenty of weapon reveals
since the title was announced back in August 2015
. Perhaps it's finally time for Team17 to reveal the release date, which has only been a vague "sometime in 2016" since the announcement.
Ghost Town Games' Overcooked
, a crazy, chaotic, co-op kitchen game, has been fun to watch evolve
since the game was announced in February
will be playable at The MIX E3 2016 at the Target Terrace rooftop from 7-11 p.m. on Wednesday, June 15th. Perhaps this is nearing a release, too?
We haven't seen too much of Ivent Games' fantasy action title Strength of the Sword: ULTIMATE
in the 10 months since it was revealed
at Gamescom. It's already missed its scheduled release date in February by several months, so fans will be glad to see it hasn't been scrapped entirely.
These are just four of what Team17 has promised is a "full range of games" to be shown at E3. Hopefully we will see them around quite a bit next week.
