Earlier this month, OODA and I shared the unfortunate news that Evolve needed to shut down. I guess it was pretty obvious that we didn’t have a lot of time to get our affairs in order before taking this action. Our decision and timing were a function of a pretty dire financial situation, which became even more dire after a payment from a new technology partner and an anticipated new round of investment both fell through in the same month.

We understand that the abrupt halt was a major inconvenience to you, our members. There’s never a convenient time to die, but this was far from the way we wanted to leave things. Well, we’d like to try to make it up to you…

Today we are humbled and overjoyed to announce that Evolve Labs has signed an agreement to resume operations of EvolveHQ, effective immediately.

That’s right: we’re back! Along with all of your profile, game, and friend data. This agreement comes at the hands of a generous new benefactor that has big plans and the resources to deliver on our shared vision of gaming better together.

We wouldn’t have done this if we didn’t think this was an amazing opportunity to bring you a brighter future in gaming. Please bear with us as we get up and dust ourselves off a bit. Our goal is to be fully operational within the next couple of days.

After that, our team will be hatching a plan for a path forward to the gaming experience we ALL deserve.

Evolve or Die,

Adam, OODA, Mamu, Pyro2927, rib3, and Friends
