THQ reiterates plans to publish the next shooter from the people behind Left 4 Dead.

The next game from the folks behind Left 4 Dead is still in the works and set to be published by THQ, according to the publisher.

The bit of good news comes amidst a month's worth of stories about THQ layoffs, game cancellations and down-sizing of projects.

Earlier today, THQ brand marketer Jeremy Greiner tweeted that he had started work on the "campaign" for the publisher's next first-person shooter. He said the unnamed game is being developed by the creators of Left 4 Dead.

"This one is going to be amazing," he added in the tweet.

Contacted this afternoon, THQ verified that Greiner was referring to the yet-to-be announced Turtle Rock Studios' game which will be developed using CryTek's CryEngine 3.

Last year THQ's Danny Bilson said that the game would do for the multiplayer space what Left 4 Dead did for cooperative gaming.

"We're going to take the first person shooter experience to a whole new level," Turtle Rock's Phil Robb said at the time.

In his tweets today, Greiner said that no new information on the project will be coming for a while.
