We're used to delays, but it's not often you see a game brought forward a week. Survival horror bloodfest The Evil Within will hit North America on October 14, rather than the previous date of October 21.
There's no official confirmation that the European date will also be moved forward (from October 24 to to 17) but it seems likely. We'll get back to on that as soon as publisher Bethesda clarifies the situation. UPDATE: Bethesda has confirmed to us that the European date has been moved forward as well, from October 24 to to 17.
