Take-Two President: Evolve DLC Sold Well Despite Controversy

March 11, 2015Written by Mark Labbe


Despite all of the controversy surrounding Evolve‘s DLC plan, Take-Two Interactive President Karl Slatoff recently mentioned at the Piper Jaffray Technology, Media, and Telecommunications Conference that he was pleased with DLC sales.

When we first picked up Evolve… our instincts told us we had something really special, and as the game evolved–I guess the pun is sort of intended–but I think our instincts have proven out right. We’re very pleased. We’ve had an incredibly successful commercial launch with Evolve. We’re very happy where things are going, particularly on the digital side. Digital has been very strong for us, not only with full game downloads but also the attach rate for our season pass has been very strong. I’m not going to give you specific numbers but we’re very pleased with those. So I would say in general, Evolve has been a fantastic experience for us and we’re very pleased with it.

Even though people were pretty miffed about Evolve‘s DLC plan, it looks like that didn’t stop them from buying all of the skins and Season Passes that were available on day one. Did you purchase any Evolve DLC?
