Evil Dead: The Game, Saber Interactive and Boss Team Games’ new co-op and PvP game based on Sam Raimi’s cult-classic horror franchise, has suffered yet another delay.
The developers shared the news in a recent tweet on the game’s official Twitter account yesterday, advising that Evil Dead: The Game is now slated for release on May 13, 2022. Evil Dead: The Game had previously been delayed to February 2022 so the team could implement a single-player mode, one that will reportedly comprise bots and just a handful of side missions.

“This delay gives our team the time they need to get things just right, so your boomstick will be polished, fully loaded, and ready to blast Deadites on that Friday the 13th of May. We thank you for your patience and understanding.”
Originally announced in December 2020, Evil Dead: The Game is a co-op and PvP multiplayer title that will allow players to work together as a team of four survivors or play as the Kandarian demon, the entity behind the Deadites, to hunt Ash and his friends. Bruce Campbell has provided all-new dialogue for the game, which is in development for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
