Insurgency: Sandstorm announced for 2017

In a blog post New World Interactive have announced a new project: Insurgency: Sandstorm.

Excerpts from the blog post:

"Sandstorm is powered by Unreal Engine 4 and will be a major visual and technological upgrade to Insurgency. Although the game is being developed for console, it will stay true to its PC roots by ensuring our dedicated audience has a seamless transition to the new game. Sandstorm retains what makes Insurgency unique and challenging, bringing this experience to a new console audience."

"In addition to console support, Insurgency: Sandstorm will contain some exciting new features such as a new story mode and eSports framework. The game is being built from the ground up with competitive multiplayer, console split-screen, and singleplayer in mind. The story mode will focus on a squad of characters as they face increasingly challenging chapters, from the invasion of Iraq in 2003 through the insurrection period and leading to the present day."

There's more details there, mostly further comments about the esports framework and their new publishing partner, Focus Home Interactive.

Insurgency: Sandstorm will be availalbe on PS4, Xbox One, Windows, OS X, and Linux in 2017.

Man, 2017 can't come soon enough. So hyped for this.
