The Evil Within is being developed by Mikami’s studio, Tango Gameworks, which is owned by ZeniMax, who also own Bethesda Softworks, the developers of the Elder Scrolls series.


The Evil Within will be available on PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4. Mikami said last year that his goal was to bring the horror back to the survival horror genre.

    That box art…What an eye-catcher! ;)

    nice, just 8 days after my birthday. I’m hoping this game will be good and not going to be rushed!

    Anyone else prefer the name PSYCHO BREAK?

    • MyBodyIsReady

      Yeah it’s similar to how Biohazard is better than Resident Evil. But it doesn’t really matter, I’ve played tons of awesome games with terrible names *cough* Dark Souls *cough*

      • Monterossa

        Any reason why they have to rename it in the west? Is “Biohazard” an improper English or something?

        • Ereek

          Biohazard is proper English, there was probably a copyright issue and someone else held the right to the name.

        • LDM

          The reason why they changed “Biohazard” to “Resident Evil”, is because there is already an old DOS gamed called “Biohazard”. Also, there includes an issue with a American punk band with the same name. As for “The Evil Within’s” (“Psycho Break”) case, I am not too sure. I guess they don’t want to confuse it with the movie “Psycho”, but it’s just a wild assumption.

    I liked the barbed wire brain better. Got the unsettling message across better.

  • MyBodyIsReady

    PS3 version for me. Totally hyped for this game, Resident Evil 4 with better graphics, more horror and less giant statues coming alive? Totally sold!

  • SprintsMcGee

    Looks like I know when I need to buy a PS4 now

  • harmonyworld

    You could almost say that the evil is resident within….

  • Freakmasta

    I can’t wait to s*** my pants… not really. But I am looking forward to it!

  • Godman

    Oh my coming out a little earlier than I expected, better move this one up my priority list

  • malek86

    With this kind of title, I sure hope we are gonna get something that represents the evil within. You can’t imagine my disappointment when I played Resident Evil and found out it wasn’t about some cruel roommates.

  • xxx128

    I am so going to puke all over my screen if this is going to be as lame as resi 4.

  • CozyAndWarm

    With all those systems, what could possibly have stopped them from releasing it on Wii U too? Pretty disappointing.

      Bestheda’s gonna bestheda
