Take-Two Interactive has delayed its big Evolve title until February, but it will still have a lot of releases coming this fall.

Evolve has moved to Feb. 10. But don’t worry, gamers. The company still has plenty of games coming out this fall.

On Oct. 24, the 2K Games label will launch Sid Meier’s Civilization: Beyond Earth on the PC. The game is the latest strategy title in a series that has generated more than 25 million copies sold to date.

WWE 2K15 will debut on Oct. 28, and Grand Theft Auto V will come out on the PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 at an unspecified date in the fall.

Rockstar’s game will have graphics upgrades compared to the last-generation version that debuted last fall. Last year’s versions sold more than 33 million copies to date, making it one of the most successful games of all time, said Karl Slatoff, president of Take-Two, in an analyst conference call today.

Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel is planned for launch on Oct.14 in North America. The game will come out on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Co-developed by Gearbox Software and 2K Australia, this a new standalone game set in between Borderlands and Borderlands 2. NBA 2K15, an annual basketball title, is also coming on Oct. 7 on multiple platforms.

That’s not a bad slate for holiday titles, and it should produce a big quarter for Take-Two.

Beyond the holidays, Take-Two’s 2K Games will release the stylized shooter Battleborn, an all-new intellectual property coming from Borderlands creator Gearbox Software. That is coming in 2015.
