Just happened upon this:

https://www.gamesindustry.biz/articles/2018-05-08-team17-confirms-230-million-flotation-plans

Basically, Team17 is preparing to sell stock, which should give them more capital, and therefore more hiring power, bigger budgets, and a chance to grow. I wonder if the update is being held back until after the smoke clears?

Any news?

Not on the Worms front, but Team17 is now officially on the stock market.

https://www.google.com/search?q=LON:TM17&e=4112296&tbm=fin&biw=1280&bih=797

As a result, the company is now valued at £217 million, with their gross profit from the offering being £107.5 million. Founder/CEO Debbie Bestwick intends to cash in £50 million of her personal £100 million stake.

I feel like someone from TUS should buy at least a tenth of these stocks. Perhaps fund DC/CS's work with them?

Seriously, I see 3.8's release increasing Team17's stock, so that should convince you if returning old-timers won't.

There's always an option to keep the old update, like I do with 3.6.31, because of Project X, which should really be updated.


Maybe in 3.8, we could see a successor to PX, even if it's primitive.
