We very much enjoyed Evil Dead: The Game when it launched last year. In fact, we called it one of the best multiplayer horror games available in our review. Since then, it’s got even better, too, with numerous updates quashing bugs, improving balance and adding new content. Unfortunately, though, it appears that it’s not proven to be popular enough for developer Saber Interactive to continue pouring resources into it.
Via a post from the developer’s official account on Twitter, sorry, X, it has been announced that no more content is to be created for the game. It’s not all that surprising to be honest, and there’s already been decent amount of post-launch support bringing characters like Mia from 2013’s Evil Dead reboot into the mix. It’s just a shame that no characters from Evil Dead Rise will ever be playable, the latest film in the series that proved to be a hit at the box office.
In addition to no further content being created for Evil Dead: The Dead, there’s bad news for those holding out for the Switch version, too. Unfortunately it’s been cancelled, and so there’s no chance of being able to battle deadites on the go on the horizon.
It’s not all bad news, though. While the Switch version of Evil Dead: The Game has been cancelled, and no further content is going to be made, its servers will still be up for the foreseeable future. And if any major issues arise, Saber Interactive will try to address them. Further development on Evil Dead: The Game may be coming to an end, then, but the game isn’t quite dead just yet.
