The monsters of the upcoming cooperative game Evolve will lurk in the shadows a couple more months.
During its second quarter earnings report, video game publisher Take-Two Interactive revealed it will push back the launch of the game to February 10, 2015.
Evolve was originally slated to launch October 21.
The game exits a crowded October field, which includes the launches of games such as Alien: Isolation, Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor, The Evil Within and Assassin's Creed Unity.
In fact, Take-Two label 2K, which will publish Evolve, has three other games launching that month: NBA 2K15, Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel and Civilization: Beyond Earth.
However, it was Evolve that seems to have generated the most buzz. The game is a first-person shooter where a team of four hunters battles a superpowered beast, with all five characters controlled by human players. It won the top prize at the E3 Game Critics Awards.
Evolve is not the first game to exit the October time frame. Electronic Arts moved both first-person shooter Battlefield: Hardline and role-playing game Dragon Age: Inquisition out of October. Dragon Age will launch in November, while Battlefield will arrive next March.
