Evil Dead: The Game has been pushed back again. This time it will launch May 13, 2022 on all systems as a feature-complete product with PVP, PVE, and solo play.

"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 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 in May."

In a recent interview, star and game producer Bruce Campbell said his top priority is to make the game worth the wait.

"I think the end result is going to be that it's worth the wait. That's my goal, that A) it was worth the wait, and B) it was worth it to play it, period," Campbell said.

Saber Interactive boss Tim Willits said at the time that development was going well:

"Development's going well. We're in the home stretch. What's really exciting about this game is that it has so many aspects. There's asymmetric PVP, you can play with your friends, and there's a couple side missions you can play by yourself. So we're adding a lot of content. We really think we can deliver that full feature Evil Dead experience to our fans."

Check below for more information on the Evil Dead game:


Step into the shoes of Ash Williams or his friends from the iconic Evil Dead franchise and work together in a game loaded with over-the-top co-op and PVP multiplayer action! Play as a team of four survivors, exploring, looting, managing your fear, and finding key items to seal the breach between worlds in a game inspired by all three original Evil Dead films as well as the Starz original Ash vs Evil Dead television series.


Play as characters from throughout the Evil Dead universe, including Ash, Scotty, Lord Arthur, Kelly Maxwell, Pablo Simon Bolivar, and more, with new dialogue performed by Bruce Campbell and others!


Fight for the forces of good or take control of the powerful Kandarian Demon to hunt Ash and other players while possessing Deadites, the environment, and even the survivors themselves as you seek to swallow their souls!


Whether you're tearing a Deadite in two with Ash's famous chainsaw hand or flying through the map as the Kandarian Demon in spirit form, the game captures the look and feel of the Evil Dead franchise in all its glory, with realistic visuals and a physics-based gore system that brings the horror to life!


Brandish your short barrel shotgun, chainsaw, cleavers and more to do some delightfully gruesome violence against the armies of darkness.

Evil Dead: The Game features multiplayer co-op and PvP for PC, Xbox One, Xbox X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and Nintendo Switch.
