Worms confirmed and unconfirmed for XBLA

File this one under "They took it down so it must be true." According to 1UP, a 2D version of Team17's Worms series is coming to Xbox Live Arcade. Furthermore, it's actually complete and awaiting certification from Microsoft. To prove their assertions, 1UP posted a link to the Team17 forums, supposedly confirming the game's existence. It went a little something like this:

"Plans for announcements are being discussed with MS next week, hold tight. The game is in final certification stages btw, yes it's pretty much all finished apart from any last bugs they find. MS has a schedule of releases and we'll soon find out how we fit into that"

It looks like someone spoke too soon (and presumably outside of NDA), as the post has since been, ahem, altered. It now reads,

"
Tom has a small todger."

So, is Worms coming to XBLA? Probably. Will it come out this year? We don't know for sure, but we'd say not, considering MS has a pretty solid lineup, um, lined up. Worms would definitely fit on XBLA. The gameplay is simple yet addictive, and it's turn based, so you won't have to deal with nasty lag. Anybody else up for some Worms on XBLA?

2. Fuck yeah! Worms is amazingly deep. The Worms 2, armageddon version and the one right after that were all awesome! The 3d versions can suck my balls...

3. Amazing title, I too hope its the 2D version. A port of Armageddon would have my *assuming* 800 MS points in a second.

4. Yeah, the 3d versions lacked something, but I would so download classic worms! Just hope it isnt valued over 400 mspoints , or I wont bother on principal

5. I like Worms a lot, but I think Gunbound perfected the genre. Gunbound for XBLA, please.

6. 2D worms rocked the house, no question. As long as it allows upside-down ninja roping, I'm good to go.

9. I got hooked with the Dreamcast's version and I've loved this game ever since. Great call.

10. The only WORMS that has ever sucked was FORTS UNDER SEIGE. Worms 3d [Special + regular] Edition and Worms 4 got a million hours of gameplay out in my garage on the original xbox. Lots of people hanging out, playing a massive game of worms with each other, having fun in the 3d world (it's amazingly deep MP gameplay if you can get used to the camera)

It's awesome, I can't wait for both a NEW 3d iteration and the classic 2d Worms action. I love you, TEAM17! I'd buy two copies on the XBLM if I could!! :)

12. Man this would be so sweet if they did release it. Ah christmas day present for free! how cool.
anyway i will be topping up my Microsoft points soon just for this.

13. Booya! I would get this in a heartbeat.

Personally I liked the first one, where the graphics were not so large and cartoony. The sheep is still one of my favorite game weapons out there...
