There’s still a few months to go before the already extensive “deferred games list” can be expanded with Evil Dead: The Game…
The Lord of the Rings: Gollum, Hogwarts Legacy, Gran Turismo 7, God of War: Ragnarok (its name is not official yet), Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time remake, Gotham Knights, SIFU, Ghostwire: Tokyo. (We’re sure we skipped a few games!) We can carve up another title to this list, namely Evil Dead: The Game, which is in development at Boss Team Games, with Saber Interactive set to be its publisher.
“Evil Dead: The Game will be releasing in February 2022. Hey groovy gamers, we’re targeting a new release date to give the team some extra time for polish and to ensure this is the ultimate Evil Dead experience you’re all waiting for!
We want to thank everyone for their understanding and support. Please stay tuned for more information about new character updates, pre-order availability, and the next gameplay video featuring Bruce Campbell,” Saber Interactive wrote on Twitter. However, the most crucial reason behind the delay lies in another tweet.
“This additional time is also allowing us to implement a single-player option that will let you enjoy the game when you are without your co-op compadres,” the reply adds. Indeed: Evil Dead: The Game is no longer a co-op and PvP multiplayer title: it will allow antisocial players to play alone. However, we have yet to see how much replayability is going to be present.
Evil Dead: The Game, which was announced in December, is thus going to launch in February 2022 at an unknown time (but seeing how this is the shortest month of the year, there aren’t many options) on every platform except iOS and Android: PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
