The asymmetrical horror title Evil Dead: The Game first launched in May last year and seemed like a promising experience for fans of the Evil Dead movies. Now, Saber Interactive and Boss Team Games have confirmed that it will no longer receive DLC or additional new content, though the game will remain playable for “the foreseeable future.”
Saber Interactive posted on Twitter that Evil Dead: The Game will not be getting future DLC but servers will stay up for players. It’s difficult to find any exact player or sales numbers online for the game so it’s hard to deduce how large or small the player base is right now. Considering that the publisher isn’t moving ahead with future DLC, it’s safe to assume that it failed to retain a good enough player count to justify adding new content.
Saber Interactive’s statement on dropping support for Evil Dead: The Game reads:
“Today, we have made the decision not to pursue the development of new content for Evil Dead: The Game. We also confirm that we will not be releasing a Nintendo Switch version of the game. We will keep the servers up for the foreseeable future and address any major issues that arise. On behalf of the entire team at Saber, thank you for all the groovy times and your continued support.”
Interestingly, Saber outright stated that it will no longer release a Nintendo Switch version of the game as it was initially revealed to be in development but didn’t launch alongside the other platforms, with plans to launch it at a later date. It’s been over a year now so at least we have confirmation from Saber that the Switch port is no longer happening. Seeing what happened to the Switch version of Mortal Kombat 1, it’s probably for the best.
Evil Dead: The Game is currently available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and PC.
