We've heard rumours of The Evil Within 2 for quite some time now, and they didn't exactly slow down when Bethesda said that the original had sold enough to warrant a sequel either. Then, earlier this year, these rumours pretty much exploded when a job listing was looking for translators and Q&A testers for "Psycho Break 2". For those of you who don't know, "Psycho Break" is the Japanese title for The Evil Within, and those jobs are usually most relevant fairly close to launch. Now we have a few other details that indicate an imminent announcement.

First of all, Tango Gameworks, the developers of the original, has just updated their website for the first time in close to a year. What's even more noteworthy about this is that the new content is password protected. Now, why would that be?

Secondly, The Evil Within is currently 50% off on Steam and has been discounted on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One several times in the last few months. You might have noticed that Sony and Microsoft love to tease or celebrate the announcement of sequels by including the originals on PlayStation Plus and Games with Gold, so this is another bit of 'evidence' for us.

Finally, it's worth mentioning that a few birdies told us that the game was in development last autumn and that it was set to be unveiled this year. All of these minor details combined makes us fairly certain that this will be one of Bethesda's surprises during their conference on Sunday night. Still, it's always nice to have a pinch of salt by your side.

REVIEW. Written by Sam Bishop

"The smoother and deeper gameplay makes up for some shortfalls when it comes to story."
