The dedicated servers for asymmetrical multiplayer Evolve will be shutting down in just a matter of months, publisher 2K has confirmed. Evolve Stage 2 — the free-to-play iteration of the game launched in July 2016 — will no longer be available on PC.
Those who purchased Evolve before it went free-to-play however will still be able to play peer-to-peer multiplayer on PC and console, but ranked games, leaderboards, and the in-game store will be shut down along with the servers. While the publisher will stop accepting virtual currency purchases on July 2, the servers will remain online until September 3.
Evolve launched to a lukewarm reception in 2015 before developer Turtle Rock relaunched it as a free-to-play game.
At first it seemed like the move was successful, with Evolve finding itself in the top 100 games (#18) on Steam for the first time since launch. However, by October it fell down to 130 and now, two years later, it sites at 712 with an average daily player count of 281.
