Asymmetrical Multiplayer has become a popular style for video games in recent years, with a large variety of titles finding a great level of success. For Evil Dead: The Game, it's looking to continue this level of popularity and establish itself as a mainstay within the subgenre.

So, when can you and your friends expect to pick up your boomsticks and slay deadites and each other? Here's everything you need to know.

What is the Evil Dead: The Game Release Date?

Well, the answer to this gets a little bit complicated.

For players wishing to purchase the game on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X and the Epic Games Store the good news is that you won't have to wait very long! In a fitting yet somewhat ironic twist, the release date for Evil Dead: The Game takes inspiration from another famous horror movie franchise with the game available to purchase on Friday the 13th of May, 2022.

Unfortunately for players waiting to play the game on Nintendo Switch, there are no release dates currently listed for Evil Dead: The Game outside of a simple "coming soon" on the game's official website. We can only hope that the release will be soon so Switch users can get groovy while fighting the army of darkness on the go.


For fans hoping to play through Steam or GOG, the release window is even less clear for the time being as Evil Dead: The Game currently has an exclusivity deal with the Epic Games Store.

While this doesn't necessarily mean a release on those storefronts happening down the road is impossible, it's unclear what the conditions of the deal with Epic are, as of writing.
