Evil Dead: The Game Delayed, But A Single-Player Mode Is Coming

Announced late last year, Evil Dead: The Game has been summoning all sorts of excitement for fans of the horror franchise. Boss Team Games’ upcoming multiplayer title has assembled an incredible roster of characters from around the series, with Ash himself Bruce Campbell even coming back to brandish his iconic boomstick for one final adventure. Though Evil Dead: The Game was previously expected to release sometime this year, the title is now rescheduled to arrive in early 2022 instead.

Announced on the game’s official social media accounts, Evil Dead: The Game was officially delayed to February 2022. Developers attributed the move to needing “extra time for polish” as well as to ensure “the ultimate Evil Dead experience” for the final release. While fans adjust to the additional wait time, Boss Team also assured the extra development would not go unwasted, confirming a new single-player option would be available alongside the main multiplayer mode.

As fans have already waited months for Evil Dead: The Game to release, the idea of even more time is sure to be a bummer. However, crafting a fully polished product is arguably the best possible reason for a delay, and the added bonus of a single-player mode is icing on an already spiffy-looking cake. While Boss Team inches towards a more comfortable release window, the developer promised more information will be available soon, including details about “new character updates, pre-order availability, and the next gameplay video featuring Bruce Campbell.”

Evil Dead: The Game is planned to release for PC, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
