Saber Interactive has announced that it will no longer be releasing a Nintendo Switch version of the online multiplayer title Evil Dead: The Game.

The studio also confirmed that it will no longer be producing further content for the title on other platforms. Servers will remain online for the “foreseeable future,” however.



A Switch version of the game was revealed back in December 2020, with the console’s logo appearing at the end of the game’s reveal trailer. The title launched on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Windows, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S in May 2022.

Evil Dead: The Game is an asymmetrical multiplayer survival title based on the beloved horror multimedia franchise, allowing players to control characters and demons from the Evil Dead films and TV series.

The voice cast featured Bruce Campbell reprising his role as iconic protagonist Ash Williams. Many other original actors from the multimedia franchise also returned, even including those from the original 1981 film.

Nintendo Switch owners looking for Evil Dead content on the system will have to settle for Dead by Daylight’s Ash vs Evil Dead DLC, which at least lets you play as Ash in another asymmetrical multiplayer horror game.
