Team 17’s next Worms game will shift the focus of the series in a new direction. Rather than another turn-based affair, Worms Rumble is a battle royale-inspired take on the series with real-time action. While it seems like Worms would be a good fit for the battle royale genre, many fans are unhappy to see the series stray from the original concept. It remains to be seen how the final product will shake out, but Team 17 might have an uphill battle with longtime fans when the game releases later this year on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC.

“Ruin” might be a bit harsh.

It’s definitely a big change.
This is not Worms anymore. It’s a Battle Royale. I liked the strategy. Now it’s just going nuts.

The genre might be getting a bit oversaturated.

Some feel the concept strays too far from the original.
Real Time, Battle Royale, No Destruction.
New worms that forgot about their roots.
I’m all in for innovation but please don’t remove the building blocks on which your franchise is based. @Team17Ltd #WormsRumble

The humor will be harder to pull off.
LITERALLY NOBODY wanted this.
Worms comedy can’t survive in some battle royale knockoff https://t.co/SYn13Ml1rw
