And another game slips to 2015. As Take-Two announced – via a report for its first fiscal quarter – Evolve is now scheduled for a 2015 release. Take-Two did not reveal the reasons behind this delay, though we are pretty sure that the team needed a little more time to polish the game.
As Take-Two noted:
“Evolve, a new intellectual property for next-gen consoles and PC developed by Turtle Rock Studios, the creators of the cooperative shooter classic, Left 4 Dead, won more than 50 editorial honors at the 2014 Electronic Entertainment Expo, including the coveted Game Critics Award top honor for Best of Show. The title is now planned to launch globally on February 10, 2015.”
Evolve is not the only game that misses its 2014 release. Both Batman: Arkham Knight and Battlefield: Hardline were delayed until 2015, and earlier this year CD Projekt RED revealed that its highly anticipated RPG, The Witcher 3, would be coming next year.
Evolve’s closed alpha phase is currently under way and – as we’ve already reported – a 23-minute gameplay video emerged that can be viewed below.
Enjoy and stay tuned for more!
