Depending on how you look at it, this could be good news. I mean really, guys, October was just looking terrifyingly clogged with gargantuan game releases. We’ve already had Dragon Age: Inquisition push itself back to November, and Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor has come forward a week just to get out of the October glut. Now Evolve has dropped its October release date and retreated into February 2015.
The reason: more time to polish. It’s not very surprising, really, as the game has experienced a phenomenal amount of media coverage and hype since it was unveiled. Turtle Rock Studios has an expectant crowd on their hands, and parent company Take-Two Interactive is aware of that as well, which is why they announced the delay during an investors call.
You can expect the game to land worldwide on 10 February 2015. That gives it a two week breathing space before another highly anticipated game launched on 24 February: The Witcher 3.
