I think you missed the part where I signed the adoption papers already.
TRS and 2K already made their money back, so you’re looking at around 1 mil (or whatever 2K paid for). But just because you bought it doesn’t mean you can do much with it.
I’m sure TRS is full-speed working on their new IP so development of Evolve would be slow.
Plus with the stigma that still exists with Evolve it will definately hurt any return investment so people would be throwing 1+ mil at nostalgia.
However TRS could make an Evolve 2 and since it’s separate from 2K they could overhaul the game, market it with “no DLC bullshit.” Then everyone is happy like Destiny 2 vs OG Destiny that people hated. Make it F2P, streamline the pvp if not add a story mode (which would go along great since the lore of Evolve is complex and unknown outside of the community.
However, speaking of that @SlabOMeat is re-buying the Evolve franchise out of the scope of possibilities if the next IP makes profit? Hell I’d donate as much as I could for the buy-back (but I’m broke college student atm). Or we can sweet talk Elon Musk into sparing a few million in pocket change.
