Evolve Delayed

Yesterday Take-Two Interactive announced Evolve will be delayed until February 10, 2015. The 4v1 multiplayer shooter was originally scheduled to launch on October 21 for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.

Chris Ashton Co-Founder of Turtle Rock Studios posted this message on the Evolve Community Forum.

Hey all. As you know, the release date got pushed back and people are understandably feeling a little deflated and hoping for answers. We understand. Here’s how it went down.

As we got closer to the October date, we were able to look at where the game was going to be, and compare that to where we all dreamed it would be. In a meeting with the top brass I described it as “painfully close.”

Fortunately 2K feels the same way and is willing to put extra time into the game so that we can make our dream a reality. That’s huge for us, and for the future of Evolve. We want to be proud of every aspect of the game on release day.

Hang in there. There’s a lot to look forward to between now and February.

And thanks again to everyone who helped us with the Alpha test. It was a huge success! We learned so much!

It’s perfectly natural to be a little upset or at the very least disappointed when a game is hit with delays. However, there are several positives to take away from this news. The game will get additional fine-tuning to make it the best possible playing experience. Of course things like frame rate, glitches, screen tears, online stability, and balancing issues may all fit under the fine-tuning umbrella. You’ll also have more time to complete the games you received before and after the holidays. I don’t know about you guys, but I feel like I never have time to trophy hunt because I’m always moving on to the next game.

We at Geek Legacy have played Evolve several times over the last few months. With each playthrough we had a blast tracking down the monster, which sometimes resulted in us getting eaten alive. This game shows a lot of promise and we can’t wait to get our hands on the finished product.
