Shinji Mikami andTango Gameworks’ upcoming horror game The Evil Within is greatly anticipated by fans of the genre, and while the release date should be near given the original August 26 date, fans should be patient because the game has been pushed back to October 21 in North America, with Australia and Europe to follow on October 23 and 24, respectively.

Publisher Bethesda Softworks clarifies that the delay was because Mikami and his team asked for additional time to “further balance and refine the game in order to deliver the polished, terrifying pure survival horror experience they set out to create.”

The Evil Within is coming to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
