The Evil Within 2 Possibly Leaked Early; Shinji Mikami Still at the Helm

The Evil Within 2 has been leaked in a sponsored ad on Reddit.

While Bethesda’s E3 press conference isn’t until later today, The Evil Within 2 made its way to Reddit in an advertisement this morning. The ad not only announced the game, but also that it is available for pre-order (which is an indication that the ad was leaked early, since no pre-order is open yet).

Reddit users were able to take screenshots of the advertisements before they were pulled. Clicking on the ads redirected users to The Evil Within website, which currently only has information on the first game.

The advertisement read:

“From survival horror mastermind Shinji Mikami comes The Evil Within 2. Now available for preorder. “The only way out is in.”

The Evil Within sequel has been rumored in the months leading up to E3. With the release of the ad, Bethesda is expected to announce the game during their presentation. Bethesda’s conference is set to begin tonight at 12. a.m. EDT, 9 p.m. PDT.

The advertisement also included a thumbnail for the upcoming game’s logo. A screen capture can be found below courtesy of Reddit user Pyrocy779. Dualshockers will be attending the conference so check back for updates regarding The Evil Within 2 and everything else E3.

Incidentally, i’m looking forward to news regarding Skyrim for the Switch, because I sure haven’t purchased that game enough times.
