Expected around Halloween
The Evil Within is staying hidden in the shadows a little bit longer than anticipated. However, there aren’t any surprise jump scares here; we know exactly when to expect it.
Originally slated for a August 26 release, Bethesda announced today that it’s being pushed back to October 21 in North America, October 23 in Australia, and October 24 in Europe. According to the publisher, “Shinji Mikami and his team at Tango Gameworks have asked for additional time to further balance and refine the game in order to deliver the polished, terrifying pure survival horror experience they set out to create.”
Although The Evil Within hasn’t impressed me thus far, maybe a few months of refinement will right the ship. If nothing else, Halloween’s that perfect time of year when everything just seems a little more scary.
