Developer Turtle Rock Studio, who is behind the “Left 4 Dead” series, has issued a response in regards to Take-Two Interactive acquiring the rights of their upcoming multiplatform current and next-gen title, “Evolve.”
Swear Valve made left for dead.... never heard of 'turtle rock' have i missed something....?!
Valve basically bought the studio, fired most of the people and kept the IP...
Turtle Rock is to Valve what Santa Monica Studio is to Sony; one branch on a larger corporate tree.
Can't ge right. If Valve own them then why aren't they publishing this game? Why did THQ own the IP?
Valve actually shut it down, but the studio reformed itself. So its on its own now. So they can make whatever under whoever they want.
Thanks for the information, DeadlyFire
Turtle Rock were the original developers of Left 4 Dead, Valve took over and continued to develop on the game and changed stuff (character models etc) to make it look better. Valve then developed Left 4 Dead 2, i am really looking forward to Left 4 Dead 3 on Source 2.
Valve bought Turtle Rock while they were working on Left 4 Dead before most even knew about the game. Transferred team to Valve South at some point. Then shut down Turtle Rock. Kept Left 4 Dead IP. Turtle Rock then reformed itself.
So how can the IP have belonged to THQ? wtf...
Oh nice I didn't know it was gonna use CryEngine 3.
