Though it doesn’t look like we’ll get to play Evil Dead: The Game this year, Bruce Campbell says we should have it in our hands not too long after that. Campbell spoke with The Screening Space and was asked about the game, which was previously said to be aiming for a late 2021 release. Campbell now says that it’s on target for a February 2022 date.

“The game is surprisingly good,” the actor said. “It is. I’m supposed to say it’s good, right? But I don’t have to say how good it is. It’s actually… all you gaming bastards will be very happy for the wait. I think it’s February 2022. Because they finally are going to do one upgrade so they can be as bitchin’ as any other game out there. That’s the problem with these games. They make a game and they’re like, ‘Oh crap, the platform is outmoded!’ And then a year goes by. ‘Okay, we’re ready — oh crap, that’s outmoded, too!’ I did a whole game, recorded hours and hours and hours, by the time the game came out, no one had that platform anymore. It just died. Okay. Technology, you know? It changes.”

The game is described as follows:

Inspired by the iconic horror, humor, and action of the “Evil Dead” universe, Evil Dead: The Game brings the biggest characters together from the franchise in an over-the-top, gore-filled experience against the forces of darkness. Work as a team of four survivors, including Ash, Kelly Maxwell, Pablo Simon Bolivar, Scotty, Lord Arthur and more, to fight Deadites, banish the vile Kandarian Demon. Or become the mighty Demon yourself, using your powers of possession to stop the good guys dead and swallow their souls!

Battle across memorable sights from the franchise, including the infamous Knowby cabin, brought to life with tons of terrifying visuals and all-new dialogue from Bruce Campbell. Discover more than 25 weapons, including Ash’s Gauntlet, Boomstick, and chainsaw, and level up a variety of skill trees to grow even stronger and survive the night.
