One of the biggest disappointments of 2018 so far for genre fans was the news that Starz had cancelled Ash vs. Evil Dead after three seasons. And not only that, but Bruce Campbell then stated how that was it for him as Ashley J. Williams, how Ash was being retired for good. Well, maybe not…
In an exclusive scoop for Bloody-Disgusting, not only has it been confirmed that an Evil Dead video game is happening, but Campbell will indeed be returning to voice the iconic Ash.
Speaking to BD about his Ash retirement and if that would stick for a video game, Campbell explained, “Oh no no, that’s different. I have previous obligations I have to fulfil. They are doing a video game, a whole immersive kind of dealio. I’ll be Ash for that, because I wouldn’t want someone else’s voice hamming it up.”
No specifics are known about this Evil Dead video game just yet, but, based on Campbell’s words, seemingly it could well be some sort of VR game – which sounds all kinds of awesome to us!
This wouldn’t be the first time that genre fans have been treated to an Evil Dead game, with six games to date; the last of which being 2011’s Evil Dead: The Game for iOS.
As ever, expect more on all of this as we get it.
