Bandai Namco Online Executive Producer, Kazuya Maruyama said of the game, "In early development planning, we established two main concepts we wanted to blend into a new Gundam game experience: “Fast and immersive Mobile Suit Team Battles” meets “The ability for any Mobile Suit to clench victory using their unique set of attributes, abilities and boost tactics”".

"We have been working hard developing this title and are beyond excited to connect FPS fans with Gundam fans."

Gundam Evolution will be free-to-play where players can select their suit from their favorite series and "freely and adapt their play style to suit the team’s needs."

A North American Network Test will be held this Spring, where players on PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 will be able to help test out various functions in the game alongside getting a first glimpse of it all in action. PS5 users will also get to try out the 4K resolution and 60fps graphics settings.
