Evil Dead: The Game PS5 PS4 PlayStation

In sad news for fans of horror games generally, and Evil Dead: The Game specifically, developer Boss Team Games and publisher Saber Interactive have announced that they will no longer "pursue the development of new content".

Saber Interactive broke the news to the Evil Dead community in a short message: "Today, we have made the decision not to pursue the development of new content for Evil Dead: The Game. We will keep the servers up for the foreseeable future and address any major issues that arise." It was also revealed that plans for the Nintendo Switch version of the game had similarly been scrapped.

It's been a monstrous year for video games, so you would be forgiven for forgetting that Evil Dead: The Game only launched in February of this year, so this revelation does come as something of a surprise. We quite enjoyed the multiplayer aspect of the title back then, but we haven't checked back in in a while. Perhaps we weren't the only ones.

Are you surprised by Evil Dead: The Game's relatively short shelf life? If you've played recently, what's the multiplayer scene been like lately? Let us know in the comments section below.
