Take-Two has said that Evolve had an 'incredibly successful launch,' with president Karl Slatoff telling those at the Piper Jaffray Technology, Media, and Telecommunications Conference that Evolve is delivering commercially.
"We're very pleased; we've had an incredibly successful commercial launch with Evolve.
“We're very happy with where things are going, particularly on the digital side. Digital has been very strong with us. Not only with full-game downloads, but also the attach rates for our season pass have been very strong. I'm not going to give you specific numbers, but we're very pleased. So I would say, in general, Evolve has been a fantastic experience for us and we're very pleased with it."
This is in stark contrast to what analyst Doug Creutz from Cowen & Company's said, as he estimated 300k physical copies sold in the US in February, which seems quite low.
"Even assuming a generous physical/digital split, we think the game will likely top-out at around 1.5m units of total worldwide first-year sell-through," he said, adding that the game is likely to be "too niche to reach a wide audience."
So what do you think of Evolve? Are you still playing?
