The Evil Within Anniversary

Four years ago today, The Evil Within 2 launched onto Xbox. Tomorrow, it will mark seven years since the first game graced our consoles. It's become something of a cult hit series, with many more Xbox owners discovering the franchise since both joined Xbox Game Pass earlier this year. As expected, Bethesda has celebrated the series' anniversary on social media with some gorgeous artwork.

Showcasing the game's protagonist Sebastian Castellanos, the stunning image gifts an anime style to the series, and one we would love to have displayed in our office. Unfortunately, blowing it up on some A3 sized paper is as far as we'll probably get.

Understandably, the comments are calling for a third game in the franchise, which isn't surprising at all. For those who haven't dived into either of The Evil Within games, they're an absolute horror fueled treat - especially the sequel, which incorporates some open-world elements.

Currently, the team at Tango Gameworks are working on the upcoming PlayStation timed exclusive Ghostwire: Tokyo, but during Xbox's Tokyo Game Show stream, studio founder Shinji Mikami revealed another title is in the works, helmed by The Evil Within 2 director John Johanas.

This gives us hope that a third title is on the way. If not, then the sequel ended on an extremely high note and we'd be happy to cherish the adventures with Sebastian we do have. If you haven't checked either out, Xbox Game Pass is definitely your friend right now.
