Turtle Rock Studios, the developers behind Evolve as well as the Left 4 Dead series announced that they will no longer be bringing support to Evolve. Coming from a forum post on their message boards Co-Founder Chris Ashton states the following:
It’s always hard to leave one of our games behind. Left4Dead was no different and now it’s Evolve’s turn. There will always be a special place in our hearts for our past projects. No matter what happens with Evolve in the future, we’ll know it was born in this studio and developed by this team alongside this beautiful community.
This comes a few months after they made Evolve a free to play game. Even though this may be upsetting to those who love Evolve, it’ll be nice to see what they will work on next. There were a few rumors in the past where there’s reason to believe they are working on a new Left 4 Dead game, but these rumors are all but to be confirmed.
Before Turtle Rock Studios halts their production on Evolve forever, they will be holding a live stream on October 27th at 12PM PST at twitch.tv/evolvegame.
