This is the life of them developers triple to not be self-financing and not are owners of their IP. We don’t have the opportunity to decide. We all know that in advance but we signed on the dotted line because we love what we do. It makes us happy to have had the opportunity to do something risky, something new and innovative. We create a whole new world of science fiction. We could go to the planet Shear and interact with the flora and fauna alien. We could hunt, trap and kill monsters together. Could BE the monster. What experience so incredible.
The servers of the game continue to active, and the community has a last meeting official in the channel official of Twitch, where Turtle Rock will make a streaming of Evolve the day 27.
