After the leak of Wolfenstein II: A New Collosus and several leaks during the year, today new details about The Evil Within 2 are circulating on forums like Reddit (it seems to have been taken down for now) and confirms the existence of title under the direction of Shinji Mikami.
Bethesda is expected to announce The Evil Within 2 during E3 2017
The advertisement on Reddit reads:
“Bethesda returns you to the nightmare in The Evil Within 2. Now available for pre-order. How will you survive?”
The ad offers the possibility of the pre-order, although not yet active, the link was directed to the official site of The Evil Within, but there is still nothing about the continuation.
The site Gematsu also reported the existence of a second advertisement with the same format but with a different text. Of that if the capture exists:
“From survival horror mastermind Shinji Mikami comes The Evil Within 2. Now available for pre-order. ‘The only way out is in.'”
This must be the other E3 event poster ad surprise that Bethesda had well-kept. So if the advert is legit, as mentioned above, Shinji Mikami – director of the original Resident Evil and the First Evil Within is still attached, which is great news. Bethesda Softworks is expected to announce The Evil Within 2 during their E3 2017 press conference at 9:00pm PT.
