Among the younger works is the asymmetrical first-person shooter Evolve, in which four players together hunt the controlled by five players monsters. In the form of Evolve Stage 2, the game was converted into a free-to-play title, which, however, could not prevail and whose servers were shut down in September 2018. Since October 2016, Turtle Rock is no longer involved in Evolve, which is distributed by 2K Games, and has been pursuing its own projects ever since. For Back 4 Blood, the studio collaborates with publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
