In partnership with Capcom, developer Behaviour Interactive has announced that Dead by Daylight will introduce a “Resident Evil Chapter” sometime in June 2021.
Dead By Daylight creative director Dave Richard said:
“We are excited to be working with the legendary studio Capcom to create the next Dead by Daylight chapter.
It is an honor and an absolute joy to welcome the original survival horror game Resident Evil in The Entity’s universe. The result is fantastic and will surprise new players and veterans alike.
Players can expect a chapter packed with iconic content and novel ways to sacrifice or survive inspired by the renowned franchise.”
Game director Mathieu Cote added:
“This is such an awesome new addition to our universe!
If you had told us, five years ago when we launched, that one day we would be adding characters from the legendary Resident Evil world into our game, none of us would have believed you.
We are so very grateful to Capcom for everything they’ve done over the years to bring horror to the world of video games.
And today, we get to bring these icons into Dead by Daylight. It is an incredibly proud moment for us.”
Further information will be announced during the Dead By Daylight fifth anniversary live stream on 25 May 2021, which will be streamed live on Twitch.
