Evolved Into Abandonware: Turtle Rock Ends Development of Evolve


We’ve been keeping a close eye on Evolve ever since its Stage 2 update to free to play went into beta on PC, hoping that it would revitalize the community and bring new life into a game that hit too many hurdles (many it placed itself) during development. It didn’t, while Evolve ballooned up to over 51 thousand players in July, as of the past 30 days less than 10% of those remain. With the free to play update on PC complete and the console versions still up in the air, Turtle Rock Studios announced today that their handling of the game has come to an end.

“Today, Turtle Rock finishes development on the project and begins to transition day-to-day server operation to 2K, as we take the operation of the Evolve franchise fully in-house.”

According to Community Manager “Shaners,” the decision to end the contract was made by 2K Games pulling the license. Whether or not Evolve Stage 2, the free to play transition, will come to consoles is unknown, however Turtle Rock won’t be heading it. There are no plans to continue creating content for Evolve.
