I haven't been as active on the forum much lately due to being wrapped up with personal things/work/school and the sorts. I would periodically poke back in to see the slew of updates that were coming through for PC and stayed incredibly excited for the possibility of things to come since I've been playing since launch day last year on console.
I log back in today to see this post, I'm pretty damn disheartened to say the least. I may not have been playing Evolve as much lately, but goddamn if it wasn't heavily talked about in passing with coworkers and friends that actively played it even with player numbers were in some pretty low points. The team at TRS stayed on top of things and were still actively making an effort to revive this game by any putting in extra time for all this free content and patchwork. Things weren't perfect, but Turtle Rock Studios still made one hell of an effort in creating something refreshing.
To @MacMan and all the members involved in this (I don't know all the usernames, so hopefully this reaches you guys) :
Thank you for creating Evolve. Thank you for putting the effort into an extremely risky endeavor despite the flak from press. Thank you for something that was truly original and created some of the most intense gameplay I've had the pleasure of experiencing in my 20+ years of playing games. Thank you for making strides to iron out bugs, the nuisances of programming/coding, and dealing with the unending headache of balancing for the sake of listening to your players. Thank you for the wildly original and fun cast of characters/monsters that made this hunt so much damn fun learning and painstakingly rewarding in mastering (Especially Griffin, landing that harpoon gun on fleeing monsters is still so gratifying). Thank you for putting in extra time in connecting with your player base and reaching out with the help of some great users on the forum.
I know this isn't the end of the road for you all since you guys have incredible talent that has plenty of room to grow upon. I wish everyone the best of luck for future projects and developments. I look forward to the next big title you all are working on, so please keep us posted.
Thanks for everything, really. You all have my unwavering support.
