Team17 have revealed that an earlier leak from the Australian OFLC is indeed true and Worms are getting spruced up for release over XBLA this year.
The name is "subject to change" and there's no "firm release date" yet says Team17. It'll come packing with new weapons and more, it's a "vastly expanded edition" of XBLA Worms.
"There’s no firm release date as yet, especially with the current Worms still performing strongly two years on and besides, we don’t really control that until we talk more with the Live team when the game is certified," Team17 studio boss Martyn Brown tells .
"However, you can expect it in the first half of 2009. The title is exclusive on XBLA for a period."
An even greater version is planned to be released over PSN and is being treated as a separate project. It'll include more levels, weapons, new audio and full support for 1080p reports.
