The sequel to Tango Gameworks' 2014 horror-action game 'The Evil Within' is reportedly being developed after a Japanese job listing was recently leaked online via a post from Dusk Golem on the NeoGaf forum.

When the job advert for a UK bug report translator is translated it describes a QA position on a 'Psycho Break 2' - with 'psycho Break' having been the first #The Evil Within' Japanese title.

It states: "Provided by domestic testers QA Bugs (Japanese) are bug-translated into English for overseas development staff."

And what is more telling is that the role is to span from April 10 to October 31 - suggesting a potential fall 2017 release.

Peter Hines, VP of publisher Bethesda Softworks, admitted previously that the success of the first titles could lend itself to sequels.

At the time he said: "Both The Evil Within and Rage did well enough that [they] could make sequels."

'Psycho Break 2' is listed as targeted to be on both Xbox One and PS4.
