Take-Two Knew Evolve Was A Bit Too "Multiplayer Focused"
Evolve is a great game...provided you want to play with others. It's not quite the same experience going solo.
But publisher Take-Two Interactive knew that. And they also cite it as a "lacking," which implies that the next title might have a heftier single-player component.
After confirming that Evolve is a permanent franchise alongside Red Dead, Civilization, Bioshock, and of course, Grand Theft Auto, Take-Two boss Strauss Zelnick talked about the success of Turtle Rock's well-received game. He says there has been "something like 27 million game sessions played" and they've moved over 2.5 million units.
Zelnick added that it's an "important franchise" but:
"We think we've developed another permanent IP. But if there were something lacking, I would say it would be that it was probably a bit too multiplayer-focused, which we knew all along."
Don't forget that Take-Two specializes in fantastic single-player experiences, as evidenced by their library of games. Obviously, they feel it's an essential part of the interactive experience, which is precisely why their games tend to be awesome. ;)
