New job listing points at The Evil Within 2 being in development

A private job listing for the production of Psycho Break/Evil Within 2 has been spotted online. Bethesda and Tango Gameworks did state in 2014 and 2015 that they hoped the horror-shooter by Resident Evil veteran Shinji Mikami would become a big franchise and it appears they may have a sequel in development.

Released in late 2014 for PS4, Xbox One and 360/PS3, The Evil Within represented return to Shinji Mikami’s Resident Evil roots in a third person shooter that played similar to RE4, albeit with more scares. The game emphasized stealth and while I personally haven’t finished it myself, I’m happy to hear about a sequel.

We certainly could use more games by people like Mikami.
