Evil Dead: The Game stole the show a few months ago with its lovely co-op gameplay and its campy 80s horror survival horror action game feel. Naturally, all good things need to be pushed back for quality assurance.
That’s right: the Evil Dead game will be delayed to February 2022, one-liners and all. The reason? Developer Saber Interactive needs extra time to polish up the game and implement a single-player option. Full Twitter post below:
“Hey groovy gamers, we’re targeting a new release date to give the team some extra time for polish and to ensure this is the ultimate Evil Dead experience you’re all waiting for.
This additional time is also allowing us to implement a single-player option that will let you enjoy the game when you are without your co-op compadres.”
Evil Dead: The Game will be releasing in February 2022

It’s probably for the best, as this year’s already packed with multiplayer co-op action games like Back 4 Blood (open beta available this weekend) and Rainbow Six Extraction, a Tom Clancy game featuring aliens. What a world we live in.
