Saber Interactive has announced that it’s decided not to pursue developing any more future content for Evil Dead: The Game, effectively ending the game’s life cycle around only 16 months since release. It also confirmed that a planned Switch version of the game will no longer be released.
The full statement from Saber reads:
“To the Evil Dead: The Game community,
Today, we have made the decision not to pursue the development of new con- tent for Evil Dead: The Game. We also confirm that we will not be releasing a Nintendo Switch version of the game.
We will keep the servers up for the foreseeable future and address any major issues that arise.
On behalf of the entire team at Saber, thank you for all the groovy times and your continued support.”
Back in May last year we called Evil Dead: The Game a “surprisingly robust multiplayer experience” in our review, saying “Evil Dead: The Game pays excellent tribute to most of the Evil Dead canon with great gusto. It looks fantastic, plays smoothly, and has a robust set of multiplayer options, that means the foundation is there for a game with great longevity. It remains to be seen whether Saber will support the game with more content, which will need a refresh in the future. But if they do, Evil Dead: The Game is poised to be one of the better horror adaptations and easily one of my favourites.”
