Evolve Deemed A ‘Permanent’ Franchise By Take Two CEO

Take Two Interactive CEO Strauss Zelnick seems to be pleased with Evolve and its potential as a franchise. Whether premature or not, he deemed the franchise a ‘permanent’ fixture in gaming to go alongside the likes of Civilization, Bioshock, Grand Theft Auto, Borderlands, and Red Dead Redemption.

This statement was made at the 43rd Annual Technology, Media & Telecom Conference in New York this week and says quite a bit if you think about it. While Evolve probably hasn’t been a dominant sales figure in the pantheon of 2015 releases, it does have an enjoyable framework that has spawned quite a bit of tournament love. Evolve’s mixture of up to 4 online players versus one overpowered online player (or bots if the numbers aren’t there) has provided a unique first and third person action-y kind of strategy mashup that will bring out the competitive side of you. Unfortunately, while the game is well polished and balanced pretty well, the multi-player only curse (a la Titanfall) seems to have led to a waterfall-esque interest trend with gamers.

Sitting at around 2.5 million sold (which is still pretty good), Take Two was probably hoping for much larger numbers given the intense buzz the game had most of last year. Still, Turtle Rock Studios has managed to continue to add free content like the newly arrived Arena mode, where its hunters vs monster in a smaller more condensed best of 3 style setting, and the Evacuation Mode, which was a lackluster attempt to add a story mode campaign.

It is a great sign that the company hasn’t deemed this game a failure and that they will continue to support it and future sequels of the game. While no talk of a sequel has been made, it is safe to say the current game will get a bit more of support this year.
