They knew the risk with Evolve, but they took the bait, and had to deal with the hook, line, and sinker.
Evolve is a little bit different. Tat was bought out of a THQ bankrupcy, and it was developed by an external studio with oversight from 2K, so it’s a totally different situation. We knew it was a very unusual title, and it was a bet on an unusual title. It didn’t surprise us that consumers had mixed feelings about it.
They just didn’t know prior that Evolve was TRS’s own game and that they started it.
2K is just a corporate entity that seeks out those bucks, and got too greedy with Evolve. Moving forward I hope that TRS either cut ties with 2K or seeks out clarity with them. With that said, both sides learned a lot and I can only hope for the best.
