Will Evolve Delay Mean a Release Date Reversal for The Evil Within?

Hardcore Gamer: Facing competition from Evolve, moving The Evil Within up a week was a smart move. Now that it no longer has to contend with it, however, it seems clear that the original October 14 is the optimal day for release. (Evolve, PC, PS3, PS4, The Evil Within, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Bethesda must be kicking themselves today.

Just release it when it's ready. I need sweet horror goodness! (And Costume Quest 2)

I don't think evolve is gonna be a big hit since it relies on extreme teamwork which I tried at e3 and it was really fun....you need friends that you can trust and work together...that is where the game shines...it will sell well but its a game that I can see only a dedicated gamer buying....don't expect casual fps gamers to buy the game....can't wait for evil within

I'm fine with that, we need more competitive fps that require teamwork and skill instead of lone wolf running and twitch reacting.

Have you played The Last of Us multiplayer? A very fine example of good teamwork to win.

I have played it and its awesome but what I'm saying is that its not going to sell millions just for the fact that its designed to focus heavily in teamwork which is awesome because I'm tired of mindless shooters...even bf has become a mindless shooter

If you have played TLOU mp you will know people will work together. Especially in the survivors game mode.

I honestly think this gen just kicked off a year too early.

I have a love hate relationship with delays. To me if you're an elite software creator you should be able to meet your deadlines with little to no problem. I also believe 70 percent of the delays that get announced are due to marketing and date position reasons and less to do with thee technical reasons. I think Turtle Rock saw the game was probably not tracking well, which companies can see this early on, and probably pushed it back. Then again if a game is not ready or is flawed in anyway I don't want to play it. It's a tricky situation.

I agree, preorders have been slow and with Destiny doing so well Evolve would suffer. Honestly COD has also been much lower then previous years as well. Moving Evolve gives it a better chance to do well.

As for The Evil Within, Bethesda really has to start pushing some advertising on it. It's a horror game and it's launching just before Halloween, they need to work that angle.

if i had to choose i would have choose the evil withing. But the mutiplayer looks fun in evolve.
