, which was originally scheduled for an October 21st release, has been pushed back to February 10th, 2015. Take-Two announced the delay in their first quarter 2015 fiscal report, and during the earnings conference call President of Take-Two, Karl Slatoff, said the following in regards to Evolve's delay:
When we first acquired Evolve, we believed that Turtle Rock was creating something truly unique, which was poised to redefine the shooting genre. Coming out of E3, our instincts were proven correct and the reaction to Evolve, including numerous awards, speaks volumes about it's potential in the market. We are encouraged by the overwhelmingly positive response from press and fans, and believe that extending development by a few months will allow the team enough time to fully realize their creative vision for Evolve, while enabling us to take advantage of a favorable release window. We very much appreciate consumer's anticipation and we're confident they will be well rewarded when the game launches in February.
A new video for the co-op shooter was released, however, so perhaps that will help ease the news for those who were highly anticipating this game.
