After Bruce Campbell teased last year that an Evil Dead video game was in the works—with Campbell returning to voice Ash, of course—we’ve been polishing our chainsaws waiting for more news on the project. And while there was some speculation that Campbell was referring simply to Ash’s addition to the game Dead by Daylight, Campbell recently put that rumour to bed, confirming a full Evil Dead game is definitely happening.
Campbell describes the game as “fully immersive” and says we’ll probably see it within a year.
One of my earliest run-ins with the horror genre came from watching my father play the clunky old Evil Dead: Hail to the King Playstation game back in the early 2000s, so I personally can’t wait to see more from this groovy project. Are you excited to see more from Ash Williams, even if it’s only in video game form?
