Bandai Namco’s latest survival horror title, Get Even was delayed for a month following the recent devastating attack in Manchester, England. The developers made the announcement via an official statement.
“Given recent events and out of respect we have decided to postpone the commercial release of Get Even to June 23rd,” said Bandai Namco. “We would like to express our deepest condolences to everyone concerned.”
Get Even was supposed to launch in two days on May 26 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The first-person psychological thriller puts you in control of an amnesiac who has to use technology to travel within his own mind and save a girl. According to the game’s description on Steam, you have to rescue “a teenage girl with a bomb strapped to her chest”, which serves as the main reason for Bandai Namco’s decision in delaying the launch.
The senseless attack happened at Manchester Arena on Monday night (British local time) after the conclusion of Ariana Grande’s concert, resulting in 22 dead and injured 59 more. Authorities are still investigating the tragedy.
