Well soon we will have new maps which were 1 month exclusive to XBONE, because 2K apparently needs money. My (conspiracy)theory is they knew that the playerbase is declining on both PS and PC, so they held back the maps for a later playermagnet on these platforms and on the same side could strengthen the game on XBONE, where the bulk of the playerbase is i presume, and also get money for it. Win/win for 2k and Microsoft, but not for the PS and PC crowd.
Also it would be a pity if Evolve loses the competetive edge, because they have to cater to the casual crowd, just to stay above water. It’s like Evolve is driving itself into it’s niché like a screw.
Bottom line is really, less worrying, more playing, Evolve is here right now and i can be sure that it will be kept alive at least until all DLC is released, regardless of the playernumbers, because that’s what TRS were contracted for. If the game is dead after all that and no one is purchasing the DLC, only then we have to worry about what happens to Evolve.
To GTA5, well the two games are vastly different, but GTA is by far less stressful than Evolve, because it’s a casual game at heart. Evolve is a competetive game which requires effort and time, and at the peak a good team which works well together and trains regularely. When you compare the peak to the bottom, which is random solo matchmaking, i can understand how Evolve is not everyone’s coffee. I like the game so much, that i just cope with all it’s annoyances, but it appears many people do not wanna put up with all the negatives and the effort to fully enjoy the game.
