The upcoming Evil Dead: The Game is one of the most anticipated games of the year, as fans are hoping to experience the blood-spilling gameplay that is to come. But the development team has updated their community about a delay in the initial release date on Twitter. This delay was enacted because Saber Interactive and Boss Team Games felt that the game needed more time in development in order to deliver the best experience for their players. So now the expected release date is in May 2022.

More Information About Evil Dead: The Game

Evil Dead: The Game was initially expected to be released in February 2022, but now is projected to be coming May 13, 2022.

The reason for this push is because the game didn’t hit the benchmark that the developers had set out for a specific feeling that they wanted from the game when they had mentioned, “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.”

This quest to make a “groovy” Evil Dead: The Game has pushed the Evil Dead team to embrace the challenge, but in turn need extra time to improve upon it to make it have a quality playing experience for their players.

Evil Dead: The Game was Initially announced at the Game Awards in 2020, so this push is nothing compared to the wait that the community has endured for this game to be released, especially considering the adjustment to working environments with the COVID-19 Pandemic, a delay in games being released is no surprise for players currently.

As the Evil Dead community is quite happy with developer Saber Interactive and publisher Boss Team’s recognition of trying to achieve a high quality game, there are some comments about getting some gameplay in between the pushed delivery date, but overall, there is positive feedback with this push.

More information is expected to be coming soon about when to pre-order the game and a new game trailer that should be coming in February.
