At their E3 2017 Bethesdaland event in downtown Los Angeles, the publisher revealed the return of Sebastian Castellanos in The Evil Within 2. Once again being developed by Tango Gameworks, but no longer being helmed by the father of Resident Evil, Shinji Mikami, the second installment in the series is looking to stand on its own as another classic horror franchise.
In the sequel, which takes place three years after the events of the first game, Sebastian will be returning to STEM in search of his once believed-dead daughter, Lily. As you would expect after playing the first game, The Evil Within 2 looks like another crazy and horrific mind trip.
We loved the first game, but thought it started to lose a little bit of steam towards the end. So it’s exciting to see Bethesda and Tango teaming up once more to continue telling the horror story. With Mikami no longer directing the game and believed to just be a producer, it’ll be interesting to see if the second games turns out better or worse.
As Bethesda has been making a great habit of doing the past few E3s, the publisher announced that you won’t have to wait long to play the just-announced sequel. The Evil Within 2 is set for release this year on Friday, October 13, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
