Turtle Rock Studios and publisher 2K Games have announced they’re shutting down the dedicated servers for Evolve.
The asynchronous multiplayer shooter will have its free, dedicated servers turned off on September 3rd. At the same time, the free-to-play version of the game – Evolve Stage 2 – will be taken offline completely.
Peer-to-peer multiplayer will still be available for all versions of the legacy version of the game, which is now known as Legacy Evolve. On July 2nd, virtual currency and the in-game market will be removed from Evolve Stage 2. If you’ve purchased things previously, you’ll still have access to them in the legacy version.
Leaderboards and server-related features like player profiles will be removed, as well as the ranked version of Hunt.
Turtle Rock Studios have put out a few virtual reality games for Oculus, while also working on a “new franchise set in an all new universe that leverages the style of gameplay our community loves and expects from” their pedigree, under publisher Perfect World Entertainment – however the latter of which hasn’t been talked about since 2016.
