Forget about the great big monsters in Turtle Rock’s forthcoming asymmetrical shooter Evolve, as it seems that Sony may have released a nasty of its own in PlayStation 4 firmware update v2.00. While specific details are vague, the developer has supposedly delayed the game’s big alpha test on the Japanese giant’s machine, apparently due to network issues caused by the console’s latest operating system overhaul.
“Following the recent PS4 v2.00 firmware update, we are experiencing difficulties with the Evolve Big Alpha on the PS4," a 2K Games representative told GameSpot. "As a result, the test on the PS4 is postponed. PlayStation and 2K are working together on a resolution. Evolve's closed alpha test is still playable on the Xbox One and PC." This is not exactly the kind of press that the platform holder could do with given recent network related events, is it?
Nevertheless, we suppose that these pre-release tests are designed to exploit issues just like this one, so if it results in a smoother launch in the long run, we doubt that too many will be able to complain. We’re going to guess that many of you are going to try in the comments section below, though.
