Games being delayed is so common that when I saw headlines including the words “The Evil Within” and “bumped” I assumed that yet another of my most anticipated titles of the year had been pushed to 2015. Nope. Bethesda Softworks is apparently so happy with The Evil Within that they have decided to ship the Shinji Mikami lead survival horror games a week early.
Bethesda’s Pete Hines:
“Shinji asked us for a little extra time with the game, but we’re really happy with it. It’s ready a week early, so we’re releasing it a week early.”
The Evil Within will now release for PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on October 14th, 2014.
