A leaked internal job listing suggests that a sequel to Tango Gameworks’ The Evil Within is in development.
NeoGAF user “Dusk Golem” posted a Japanese job listing for a QA and translator on Psycho Break 2, which is the Japanese title of The Evil Within. The description lists Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as the platforms for the sequel. Of course, all of this should be taken as rumor for now, as a sequel has not been confirmed by either Bethesda or Tango Gameworks.
Last year, Bethesda VP of PR and marketing Pete Hines said that both The Evil Within and Rage sold well enough to warrant sequels.
“I can’t talk about the unannounced stuff and what we may or may not do,” he said at the time. “So I won’t confirm or deny stuff we may or may not do, as people jump to the wrong conclusions. But I do think both The Evil Within and Rage did well enough that we could make sequels.”
The Evil Within originally launched in 2014 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
