An earnings release from publisher Take-Two Interactive has revealed Turtle Rock Studio’s co-op monster hunter game is now delayed.
The creators of Left 4 Dead, Turtle Rock Studios, have now seen their latest co-op shooter, Evolve, delayed until 10th February 2015. This news comes from an earnings release from publisher Take-Two Interactive yesterday.
Evolve is a game where four players must work together to hunt down a huge, hulking great monster, but that monster is also controlled by another player. From what we’ve seen it kind of works in a similar way to Left 4 Dead’s tank encounters, but obviously with an entire game surrounding it.
Evolve has recently undergone a closed alpha test in which a select few were given the chance to play the game and help the devs fine tune it.
This delay is one of many to have happened recently, with Battlefield Hardline and Dragon Age Inquisition in a similar boat.
In a report from Polygon they were given an official statement from a 2K Game rep which reads;
“As stated on the Take-Two Interactive earnings call, 2K and Turtle Rock Studios are extending the development of Evolve by a few months to allow enough time to fully realize the vision for Evolve and meet our collective standards of creative excellence. We are encouraged by the press reaction and fan excitement coming out of a very successful E3, and we are now certain we are headed in the right direction with the game and we are confident in delivering a genre-defining product when Evolve launches on February 10, 2015."
We’re all for delays if it means the game will be the best it can, plus we’ve got plenty of games coming out in the next few months to keep us busy.
