Since the ‘80s, the Evil Dead franchise has spawned several video games over the years — including Evil Dead Pinball — and if you’ve been looking forward to the newest Evil Dead game, you’ll be stuck with those old titles for a little longer. Evil Dead: The Game has been delayed until May 2022.
Originally slated for a February 2022 release, Evil Dead: The Game will now arrive on console on May 13, 2022. The official Evil Dead: The Game Twitter account revealed that the multiplayer game has been delayed in order to “deliver the best possible experience.” According to update, the developer will soon release more information along with a brand new trailer.
