The Evil Within has a new release date and it’s not a delay. Throw a parade!


Speaking to the QuakeCon audience today, Bethesda boss Pete Hines said The Evil Within has been brought forward to October 14.

That’s a week earlier than the October 21 release date announced earlier this year, and will give the classic survival horror effort a bit of breathing space in the crowded release calendar.

The Evil Within was originally announced for August launch before being delayed. It’s coming to PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Other news from the QuakeCon stream was limited; Quake Live is coming to Steam “very soon” and Wolfenstein: The New Order is on sale to celebrate QuakeCon.
