Publisher 2K Games has announced that the servers for Turtle Rock Studios' asymmetrical multiplayer game Evolve are to be taken down, with a gradual removal of services leading up to the final end point for servers: September 3.
Peer-to-peer multiplayer will continue to be available in Legacy Evolve on PC and console, and players will keep all purchased DLC content, such as Hunters and skins, but that's it. July 2 marks the date when virtual currency bundles will be removed from Evolve Stage 2 and no longer available to purchase, while September 3 shuts the servers down, meaning Evolve Stage 2 is no longer available, nor is the in-game store.
You can play Legacy Evolve after the dedicated servers shut down, but the free-to-play version (Stage 2) won't be available. As for keys, these will be available to purchase until July 2, and keys can be used to purchase content until September 3, with all content being kept in Legacy Evolve.
The features being removed include ranked Hunt (although you can still play Hunt via custom games and quick play); player profile data; leaderboards; in-game store; newsfeed; and player badges.
