Is the blood, horror and laughter experience of Evil Dead The Game coming to an end? Saber Interactive regains social media to announce the premature end of post-launch support for the multiplayer horror and the definitive cancellation of the Nintendo Switch port
“We have decided not to continue developing new content for Evil Dead The Game“, the representatives of the US subsidiary of Embracer Group began on Twitter/X before adding that “we will not launch a new version of the game for Nintendo Switch. We will keep the servers active for the foreseeable future and we will address any problems that arise by publishing appropriate patches. On behalf of the entire Saber team, thank you so much for all the wonderful moments you have given us and your constant support.”
The Embracer Group crisis, therefore, also affects Saber Interactive and the work that the American software house was carrying out to enrich the asymmetric multiplayer experience of the official Evil Dead video game with content. At least for the moment, the servers will continue to be active and there will be no repercussions on the experience enjoyed by the emulators of Ash and his companions, even if the message shared by Saber and the cuts on productions and studies decided by Embracer Group do nothing but cast a shadowshadow on the future of the Evil Dead horror slasher and, unfortunately, from the same New Jersey development house that in the past gave shape to titles such as World War Z and which, between now and the next few months, plans to launch Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine 2, John Carpenter’s Toxic Commando, Expeditions A Mudrunner Game and the console version of Teardown.
