Turtle Rock's co-operative monster-hunting shooter Evolve won't make its original projected release date, publisher Take Two has revealed.
Instead of launching in October 21 as was first claimed, the title will slip back to February 10, 2015. Take Two CEO Strauss Zelnick confirmed the news in an investor call yesterday, pointing to February as a better release date that would avoid clashing with several high-profile launches.
Zelnick called February "a favorable release window", and pointed out that the company has moved titles away from the heavily contested holiday period before. Evolve joins a growing list of high-profile delayed games, including Battlefield: Hardline, Arkham Knight and Dragon Age: Inquisition - though the latter will still make it out this year.
It's a shame, but a longer development time is rarely a bad thing for any game. Look for Evolve on February 10 for PC and current-gen consoles.
