Worms creator rejoins Team17

After 17 years and over 20 games, the Worms series is getting a little long in the tooth. As developer Team17 works to get out of that rut with the newly-announced Worms Revolution, it'll be getting a helping hand from the series' creator, Andy Davidson, who has now rejoined the English indie studio.

"I left Team17 feeling I hadn't finished what I wanted to achieve, but for professional reasons I knew I had to walk away," Davidson said in the announcement. He left Team17 following the release of 1997's Worms 2. "I've returned to scratch the creative itch that's been bothering me for the last fourteen years."

Davidson explained that he'll be offering his "insight" to Revolution, "to ensure that the game balance is true to the spirit of the brand." Team17 also teases that he "has been working on a variety of new game ideas," so who knows, we might even see something original from Team17.

Worms Revolution is coming to PC and unspecified consoles between July and September.
