Team 17 went all out back in 2009 with Worms 2: Armageddon on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network, featuring the most feature rich Worms experiences yet. Now after a year of working on reviving the Alien Breed franchise, it looks like they're set to head back to the ol' money maker.

The Australian Classification Board has rated a game called Worms: Ultimate Mayhem. with no specific console noted, but Team 17 are completely focused on digital distribution now, and have released all their games on Xbox Live Arcade first.

What could it be? How could they change things up this time around? Well here's a little bit of speculation: Worms 2: Armageddon nicked the Armageddon name from their previous 1999 classic. Incidentily, Mayhem was the tag line for Worms 4, which was their 3D iteration. This would mark the first foray into 3D Worms on a HD console, which would mean for some awesome deformation technology.

I actually had a ton of fun with Worms 3D back in the day, and I'd be up for playing some more on XBLA. Pure speculation, of course.
