After 4 years since the last installment, developer Team17 has announced that Worms will be getting a new release this year, according to their Twitter post.
Grab your Bazooka and jump on your Sheep, the Worms are back in 2020 like you’ve never seen them before.
New Worms, new ways to play.

I’m sure many of us already know – Worms is a multiplayer artillery shooting game that involves players taking turns shooting at each other by aiming their angles correctly while maneuver across deformed but destructible landscapes that creates chaos which requires players to adjust and adapt across different strategies in order to take out the opponent. The main difference to other similar titles is that player models are literally cute, cartoonish worms that resemble the title, have hands and are armed with weapons, and is regarded as the series that popularized the genre. It’s also combined with some slapstick humor to make everything enjoyable.
However, the announcement post only contains a short rewind style video of past titles and no information regarding Worms 2020 is revealed so be sure to follow Team17 or the official Worms account for more teasers in the future.
I wish cross-platform is supported so that all players around the world can screw around and have fun without the worries of the isolated player base and long queue times.
And I’m personally excited about this game too since I grew up with this game. Holy hand grenade, banana bomb, and many other iconic weapons will soon be available once again.
