Development of new content for Evil Dead: The Game has stopped, developer Saber Interactive announced. The planned Switch version of the game was also canceled.
In a statement posted on X (formerly known as Twitter), Saber explains that even though the game was only released last May, it’s still practically ongoing. Saber didn’t give a reason for the decision, but said it still plans to fix any major bugs and keep the servers running “for the foreseeable future.” Check out the full statement below.
To the Evil Dead: The Game community,
Today we made the decision not to continue developing new content 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 operational for the foreseeable future and address any major issues that arise.
On behalf of the entire Saber team, thank you for all the great times and your continued support.
Evil Dead: The Game is an asymmetrical multiplayer game set in the popular cinematic universe in which players control Ash and his friends to survive against a player-controlled Kandarian demon. We weren’t particularly impressed with the title when it was released. Video editor Alex Van Aken gave the game a 6 out of 10 and wrote in his review: “It’s incredibly one-sided for a game that’s only about two sides. And it’s extremely unbalanced.” In this episode of New Gameplay Today, you can watch a team of editors tackle the game.
