Looks like yet another game is getting delayed out of the hellish month of October. Publisher 2K Games are pushing Evolve into February of next year.
February 10, 2015 to be exact. In a financial statement, the parent company revealed that the Turtle Rock game will need some more time to be polished before release. Here’s what Turtle Rock had to say in a press statement:
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!
Of course, Evolve isn’t the only game that has been delayed as of late. Battlefield: Hardline, Batman Arkham Knight and The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt will all be out next year as well. A little bit of extra polish never hurts a game however, and now that October is starting to look far more manageable, various reviewers should be able to breathe a sigh of relief and not have to resort to Plan Brooks Was Here.
