Turtle Rock Ceases Development on Evolve

Posted Oct 26, 2016 by Suzie Ford

Turtle Rock Ceases Development on Evolve

Evolve developer Turtle Rock has bid an emotional farewell to the multiplayer shooter. As of yesterday, the studio will no longer support Evolve, though Evolve Stage 2 servers will remain online, according to a statement given to Polygon by 2K. Though Turtle Rock has completed its development run with Evolve, the studio is not finished with game development.

While Evolve received a nice population bump earlier this year after going free to play, the numbers didn't hold over time, eventually leading to the cessation of production by Turtle Rock that does not own the IP.

This is the life of AAA game developers who aren’t self-funded and don’t own their own IP. We don’t get to make the call. We all know that going in but we still sign the dotted line because we love what we do. We are happy to have gotten the opportunity to do something risky, something new and innovative. We created a brand new Sci-Fi world. We got to go to planet Shear and interact with alien flora and fauna. We got to hunt down, trap and kill giant monsters together. We got to BE the monster. What an awesome experience.
