In October of 2014, a new team joined Evolve with a simple mission:
Make the PC gaming experience easier for everyone.
A lot has changed since we first started on this journey. The new team determined that the best way for the company to support its growth and our roadmap objectives was to take a new direction.
Evolve had to evolve.
We are extremely proud to announce that we are ready to provide early access to certain core functionality of Evolve 2.0 on September 22, 2015.
The client is redesigned and built on new, more modern technologies. This allows us to bring Evolve to Mac OS X and Linux. Mac OS X support is ready immediately, Linux will follow soon.
Evolve 2.0’s servers and services are built to grow as Evolve’s user base grows. This new platform will bring a lot of new features like chat history, offline messaging, and better voice chat. Most importantly, Evolve will be more stable and reliable.
We are grateful for all of you who have stayed with us and helped Evolve grow. We are especially grateful to those who contributed to our Helix donation program, and those who are monthly subscribers to our Party+ Premium service.
Helix and Party+ members will be the first to get early access. In one week those users will receive another email with instructions on how to download the new client for Windows and Mac OS X.
Thank you all for supporting Evolve. We look forward to creating an even better gaming experience so that you can play, party, and share with your friends.
