Ghostwire: Tokyo launches on PS5 and PC next month, but as it turns out, it could've been The Evil Within 3. Fans will remember The Evil Within marked Tango Gameworks' debut game in 2014, getting a sequel three years later with The Evil Within 2.

Speaking with GameSpot, The Evil Within 3 was eventually scrapped when Tango made major changes to the game’s setting. While both contain horror elements, Tango eventually drifted away from psychological horror, focused on the occult instead.
