Despite Bruce Campbell “retiring” as Ashley J. Williams earlier this year, there have still been recent rumblings about something Evil Dead being on the way. And now, it looks as if we may have an update on just what that something is.
Speaking to TV Insider, Campbell has now revealed that a new Evil Dead video game is in development.
As the genre icon put it, “We’ll see more Evil Dead, that’s for sure. There is an Evil Dead video game out. A fully immersive video game probably within a year. I’m not sure about the day. There will be variations of that. There won’t be the original Ash anymore. That guy is done.”
On what platform or what the specifics of the game are, we’ll have to wait and see. The one thing that we do know is that a new Evil Dead game is definitely happening, and that is all kinds of groovy with us.
This won’t be the first Evil Dead game to come around, of course, with Evil Dead: Hail to the King, Evil Dead: A Fistful of Boomstick and Evil Dead: Regeneration having been released previously. Then there’s the fact that Ash has recently turned up as a playable character in Dead by Daylight.
Expect more on this new Evil Dead offering as we get it.
