Originally set to crawl out on June 22, the zombie game which looks to be the spritual successor of the Left 4 Dead franchise is now eyeing October 12 as it’s new release date.

Turtle Rock Studios is working hard to make Back 4 Blood the best game it can possibly be at launch and the team needs more time to do this. Therefore, we will release Back 4 Blood on October 12, 2021. We thank our community for its continued support and are excited to share that there will be an open beta this summer.
While no doubt a bummer, can’t say I’m shocked by this bit of news. Hopefully, the open beta will be a banger of a good time. In case you haven’t seen it, go read and watch our gameplay impressions of the closed alpha held earlier this year right here.
