Evil Dead: The Game from developer Saber Interactive has been delayed yet again, this time with a new release date of 13 May 2022. The game was previously pushed to February 2022 from a release window last year, but it looks like they’ll need a bit more time to polish the title.
Saber Interactive took to Twitter to confirm another delay for Evil Dead: The Game, stating that they’ll need extra time to “get things just right” before announcing a new date of Friday the 13th of May 2022 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch and PC.
The full statement on the delay reads:
“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.
This delay gives our team the time they need to get things just right, so your boomstick will be polished, fully loaded, and ready to blast Deadites on that Friday the 13th of May. We thank you for your patience and understanding.”
Saber Interactive concluded that a brand new trailer for Evil Dead: The Game will drop sometime in February, along with pre-order news.
Evil Dead: The Game is a new survival horror title based on Sam Raimi’s legendary Evil Dead film franchise. The gameplay will focus on co-op and PvP, and will see the return of Bruce Campbell as Ash Williams, the iconic protagonist of the series. Pablo from the Ash vs Evil Dead series will also appear in-game as a playable character.
Evil Dead: The Game now releases on 13 May 2022 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch and PC.
