Bandai Namco’s upcoming Psychological Horror/Shooter Get Even was originally set to release later this week on May 26th, however due to the tragic terrorist attack that hit Manchester, England on Monday, the company has decided to push back the release of the game.
“Given recent events and out of respect we have decided to postpone the commercial release of Get Even to June 23rd,” a company representative said in a statement. “We would like to express our deepest condolences to everyone concerned.”
In Get Even, players take the role of an amnesiac Mercenary who awakes in a decrepit house and using technology to dive into his own mind to relive his memories as he attempts to explore the truth behind the only thing he can remember: the rescue attempt of a teenage girl with a bomb strapped to her chest. The game is developed by The Farm 51 who previously developed Painkiller – Hell and Damnation.
Given the insanely dark premise of the game and the recent attack in England, we have to say it’s a good call to hold the game back.

Our hearts go out to the people of Manchester and the families affected by this horrible act of violence.
