Studio behind Evolve is working on an 'unannounced new IP'

Don't go counting your monster before they hatched, Evolve fans.


Turtle Rock Studios, best known for its work on the Left 4 Dead series and 2K Games’ Evolve, is apparently working on an unannounced new game IP, that is, according to the company’s Careers section of its website.

The Careers section of Turtle Rock Studios’ website lists a number of open positions, many of which have been tagged for work on an “unannounced new IP.” The open positions include a search for a Narrative Director, a Senior Character Artist, and a Senior Rendering Programmer, to name a few.

Evolve fans who were hoping for a sequel will probably be getting their hopes up at this point. We find it hard to believe Turtle Rock Studios has the manpower to work on two major projects at this point, especially when Evolve didn’t exactly set the gaming world on fire. So for the time being, we should keep an eye out to see what Turtle Rock Studios has up its sleeve, although considering the studio’s history, we wouldn’t be surprised if it was a team-based shooter of some kind.

          Yea, I played for about 2 weeks then stopped. The concept (and gameplay) was pretty nice, but I lost interest with all the dlc stuff.

        That was on 2K Games, not Turtle Rock. Devs don't make that kind of decisions, it's all on the publisher.

      Hopefully the development studio evolved into one that knows how to make a fun game without trying to monetize it to death.

        The Heavy Monetization of the game more than likely fell right on 2K's shoulders rather than Turtle Rock's. Monetization edicts usually come from publisher when there is one and I am super willing to believe that 2k went hog wild on them the way they did because they thought it would have been the next "big game that would last forever" but also because of Turtle Rock's insistence on no Map DLC.

          In that case, does a development studio have no recourse if the publisher is so willing to trash their work and they know it isn't going to work? What if they said no to the monetization, then the publisher would drop them, forcing said studio to find a new publisher?

      I can't imagine that they would be making something new without learning from the lessons of Evolve. Right? RIGHT?!???

        I'm assuming they'd crush the studio under the weight of a thousand lawyers.
