These victories mean that Evolve won five out of the thirteen award categories throughout Gamescom, the most official awards any game has ever won at the event. The results have certainly left both developer Turtle Rock Studios, and publisher 2K in high spirits for their upcoming 4v1 cooperative shooter.

“We are blown away by the positive reception for Evolve from both the critics and the consumers here at Gamescom,” said Phil Robb, co-founder and creative director at Turtle Rock Studios. “Winning the ‘Best of Show’ award at both E3 and Gamescom in the same year is humbling and exhilarating.”
