Evolve delayed into next year

Evolve was one of the mostly hotly anticipated games of the year. Bad news though for anyone who was looking forward to spending the autumn slaying huge monsters – the game was been delayed until February.

According to Gamespot, TakeTwo President Karl Slatoff explained the decision saying that:

“We are encouraged by the overwhelmingly positive response from press and fans, and believe by extending development by a few months, it will allow the team enough time to fully realize their creative vision for Evolve”

The game itself has an interesting premise. Like Left 4 Dead, which the team behind it previously made, it does away with single player and instead of focuses on multiplayer matches – where one player plays the role of a massive mythical monster, and the other players team up to try and take them down. It’s an asymmetric twist on the standard death-match.

We had a brief hands on with the title a few weeks ago and (whisper it) we weren’t hugely impressed – there didn’t seem to be much new. So perhaps staying in development for a little longer could give the game the tune-up it perhaps still requires.

The game is now due for release on 10th February 2015.
