Turtle Rock Studio, the developer of the “Left 4 Dead” series, has issued a response in regards to Take-Two Interactive acquiring the rights of their upcoming title, “Evolve.” In a message from their official Facebook page on Jan. 25, the studio revealed that they will miss working for THQ, who filed for bankruptcy and then sold the publishing rights. They also stated that they are excited with working 2K Games, which is a subsidiary of Take-Two Interactive. You can check out some images of “Evolve,” as well as some fan concept images of the PS4 and Xbox 720 (which are some of the rumored platforms the game may be released on) in the slideshow at the top of this article and the comments from Turtle Rock Studio below (courtesy of the Turtle Rock Studio Facebook):
Turtle Rock has a new publishing partner!
While we will surely miss our friends at THQ, getting picked up by 2K is probably the best thing that could have happened to us. We are super excited to have them as our new partner. These guys have been involved in the creation of some truly legendary games and we aim to add another one to the list!
The upcoming “Evolve” is slated to be released for currently and next-generation systems, which will most likely include the PS4 and Xbox 720. The video game will be using the game engine called CryEngine 3.
