The Evil Within begins its haunt on October 14

Those looking for a taste of Resident Evil creator Shinji Mikami's next survival horror experience will now get to do so a week earlier. Bethesda announced at today's QuakeCon opening festivities that The Evil Within's release date is being bumped up by a week, going from October 21 to October 14.

The Evil Within was originally slated to release on August 26 before getting its new October window. Bethesda had previously cited that they had wanted to release the game closer to Halloween, something this neweset release date curiously strays away from.
