Take-Two Interactive has agreed to buy Turtle Rock Studios, developer of the original Left 4 Dead, and its intriguing new IP "Evolve" as part of last night's THQ auction. The Grand Theft Auto publisher has also reportedly laid claim to the WWE licence, but we're still waiting for confirmation on that front.
Artworks picked up by internet detective Superannuation reveal a science fiction setting featuring starships, giant insectile beasts and what could be construed as squad commands. The game may run on Crytek's CryEngine 3, if this tweet is any indication.
Take-Two will pay $10.8 million for Turtle Rock, easily outstripping the $250,000 back-up bid offered by the studio itself. Catch the Evolve concept artworks below. What do you think?
