‘Evil Dead: The Game’ Release Date Bumped To February 2022

Gamers who were expecting to get their hands on Evil DeadThe Game later this year will have to be patient. It ain’t gonna happen.

The highly anticipated game from Boss Team Games and Saber Interactive will now release sometime next February, according to a report on comicbook.com. The delay, according to the creators, was necessary to ensure a more polished product down the line, as well as to provide a single-player option who those who like to play solo.

A tweet–seen on this page–was posted this week, saying the developers are “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.”

Evil DeadThe Game–for PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch–will let players “work together as a team of four survivors–exploring, looting, crafting, managing their fears and finding key artifacts to seal the breach between worlds,” according to the official description.

In this “gore-filled battle against evil”, players will also be to “take control of the powerful Kandarian Demon to hunt Ash and his friends while possessing Deadites, the environment and even the survivors themselves as you seek to swallow their souls.”

The voice talents for the game include Bruce Campbell, Marcus Gilbert, Richard DeManincor, Ray Santiago and Dana DeLorenzo.

The original 1981 The Evil Dead film–written and directed by Sam Raimi–follows five college students vacationing in an isolated cabin who find an audio tape that, when played, releases a legion of demons and spirits. Recognized as one of the greatest horror films ever, The Evil Dead grossed anywhere from $3 million to $29 million worldwide (the numbers differ wildly) on a budget of just $375,000.
