The Evil Within needs a few more months, now launching October

Posted on May 27, 2014 AT 07:27am

Shinji Mikami and Tango Gameworks’ The Evil Within will no longer meet its original August release date, and will now launch in October, publisher Bethesda has announced.

The game was originally set to hit PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC on August 26, but will now be available from October 21 in North America and October 24 in Europe.

A statement from Bethesda reads: “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.”

To apologize for this delay, Bethesda has released a new trailer that features ordinary people being scared, terrified, and generally unnerved while playing the game.
