“Evil Dead: The Game,” a multiplayer horror sensation that has delivered spine-tingling thrills to gamers, is facing an unexpected twist. Saber Interactive, the developer behind the game, has dropped a bombshell by revealing that they will no longer be adding new content to Evil Dead.
This revelation comes as a surprise to fans who have been eagerly anticipating fresh updates and additions. However, Saber Interactive has expressed gratitude to the game’s dedicated fanbase for their unwavering support.
For those unfamiliar with Saber Interactive’s multiplayer masterpiece, “Evil Dead: The Game” made its debut in 2022, quickly establishing itself as a top-selling title in the ever-expanding survival horror genre.
Within just five days of its initial release, the game achieved a remarkable milestone, surpassing 500,000 sales. This impressive launch put it ahead of even genre giants like “Dead by Daylight.” However, it appears that this success was short-lived.
Saber Interactive’s message to the “Evil Dead: The Game Community” begins with the somber announcement: “Today, we have made the decision not to pursue the development of new content for Evil Dead.”
This declaration also carries disappointing news for Nintendo Switch owners, as Saber Interactive has confirmed that they will not be releasing a version of the game for the popular handheld system.
In an effort to ease concerns, the developer adds, “We will keep the servers up for the foreseeable future and address any major issues that arise.” Thankfully, this means that the multiplayer functionality of “Evil Dead” will remain accessible for an extended period, and Saber Interactive will continue to roll out essential patches to address any unforeseen issues.
Saber Interactive concludes its message on a more optimistic note, stating, “On behalf of the entire team at Saber, thank you for all the groovy times and your continued support.” While the future of “Evil Dead: The Game” may appear uncertain in terms of new content, players can still enjoy their groovy adventures alongside Ash Williams and Bruce Campbell, as the developer ensures server support continues.
For those concerned about the future of “Evil Dead,” there are plenty of exciting upcoming PC games to look forward to, offering a welcome distraction from this unexpected news. Alternatively, players can explore some of the current favorite multiplayer games that provide the kind of group-based fun reminiscent of “Evil Dead.”
