These are the concept art from Scott Flanders I found - the concept artist who worked in Evole game.
I’m not sure if these were ever posted here on the forum other than SwordHyde picture. I have never played Evolve myself but after reading some brief story and some discussion on the official discord, these artworks seemed to be what was supposed to be “Evolve 2 characters” - as a more story driven full fedged game or expansion that contradict the final story. However there were restrictions (see how Evolve died), that caused most of these idea to be scrapped… the current story feels “rushed”, and the amount of the characters who are killed off seems almost sarcastic to the game situation.
It seemed like the story of these supposed concepts still used the idea of Kala becoming a monster that turned Shear into Wasteland as what happened in the “officially unoffical lore” - but the outcome of the event was different. There were more survivors of the event (The final only has Hyde + Daisy/Slim/Jack left on Shear. And Sunny/Parnell/“Warbucket” using Patterson against monster).
In these concept art - it seems like Abe, Caira, Lennox, Hank, Torvald, Maggie and Griffin will be alive post-cataclysm (And Crow MAY be dead). The way Monster situation end may prove to be different too? Hyde is also not going to be Kali-Mutant, but he still looks like a pretty badazz team leader here like the final plot.
(And I love the idea that “The Crab” Savage Slim here may results from of his gene being already unstable - and Kali catalysed his mutation process further…)
The art can be found here, see how it is labelled “e2”… Evolve 2?? https://www.artstation.com/artwork/K4WPo
