Evil Dead The Game Delayed To May 2022

It looks like Evil Dead fans will have to wait a few more months as Evil Dead the Game has been delayed.

Originally slated to be released in February 2022, the game has a new release date of May 2022. The developer of the title, Saber Interactive, had this to say about the delay;

Hey Evil Dead fans! When we set out to create a brand new game worthy of the Evil Dead franchise, we knew it had to be groovy as hell. In order to deliver the best possible experience, Evil Dead: The Game is now coming on May 13, 2022.

I’m sure we all know my stance behind delaying games to add more polish and that it’s a good thing. Anytime a developer, publisher, or both delays a game to make sure it can be the best it can, is always a good thing. 

Evil Dead The Game is an upcoming title based in the Evil Dead universe. Players will play as a team of four survivors, exploring, looting, managing your fear, and finding key items to seal the breach between worlds in a game inspired by all three original Evil Dead films as well as the Starz original Ash vs Evil Dead television series. It will also feature some familiar talents with Bruce Campbell, Dana DeLorenzo, lending their voices and likeness for the game.

Evil Dead: The Game is set to be released for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Switch, and PC.
