The Farm 51's Get Even, an upcoming shooter that was planned to come out on May 26, has postponed its release following the Manchester terrorist attack yesterday evening. Get Even is now planning to release a month later, on June 23.

Get Even is narrative-focused with an emphasis on psychological horror. In the game, which has photorealistic visuals, the protagonist makes his way through derelict environments with only a phone and gun on hand. You can view the trailer, which features an abandoned warehouse and a young woman tied up and strapped to a bomb, by heading here. Because of the game's themes, Farm 51 felt it was ill-suited to release so quickly following the Manchester attack.

"Given recent events and out of respect we have decided to postpone the commercial release of Get Even," writes developer Farm 51 in a statement. "We would like to express our deepest condolences to everyone concerned."

Last night, a bomb exploded during an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England. 22 were killed, along with more than 50 injured. The attack has since been classified as an act of terrorism with the Islamic State claiming responsibility.


Our Take
Game Informer extends its condolences to the families and friends of victims from last night's deadly attack. Get Even features photorealistic visuals, with one scene from the trailer showing a woman tied to a chair with a bomb strapped around her. Because of the game's themes, it seems like a thoughtful and respectful gesture to delay the game slightly, even though this makes for a longer wait for fans.
