Evil Dead: The Game will also be delayed. The developer has just announced via Twitter that the title will not release in the summer of 2021 as promised.
Evil Dead: The Game delayed to February 2022
We heard about Evil Dead: The Game for the first time in December last year. At that time, this title was scheduled to release in 2021. Unfortunately, we will have to wait a bit longer for its premiere.
The representatives of Saber Interactive and Boss Team Games studios officially announced that the game set in the Evil Dead universe will be delayed to February 2022. The reason for the delay was the additional time that developers will spend on polishing this production.

Evil Dead: The Game will release on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The creators promise that soon new gameplay will appear, in which we will see Bruce Campbell.
By the way, we would like to inform you that new feature-length production from this universe is coming to cinemas: Evil Dead Rise. Lee Cronin will direct this film, replacing Sam Raimi in this position.
Sam Raimi has directed three productions from the Evil Dead universe in which Bruce Campbell starred (Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2, and Army of Darkness). Campbell once suggested that, like the 2013 film, this project will also focus on the female protagonist. The film Evil Dead Rise will be played by Alyssa Sutherland and Lily Sullivan.
In addition to them, Gabrielle Echols, Morgan Davies, and Nell Fisher will appear on the set. Unfortunately, no additional details about the plot of the upcoming movie are yet known. The release date also remains a mystery.
