Bruce Campbell recently told a fan on Twitter that an Evil Dead game is forthcoming. However, it’s a matter of time.
Bruce Campbell responded to a fan’s question on Twitter about the possibility of an Evil Dead game. Of course, the actor responded, yes. This is something that had been discussed in May 2018 when I asked Bruce if a virtual reality Ash vs Evil Dead experience was in the works.
He also confirmed that there would be upcoming incarnations which leads one to think that although the AVED and Evil Dead worlds are dormant for now, they may return in alternate forms just not a television show or movie. In my interview with Ray Santiago, he also gave a scoop on the VR immersion game.
“I know we are all involved. Pablo’s hair and mustache are definitely going to be on point because I had to approve it. I sat in a room with these creators, I think they were in Sweden and we talked about it for a very long time.”
That particular discussion with Ray occurred in October of last year. According to ThinkMobiles:
“Horror games in VR as realistic as they are with the latest Virtual Reality technology are the true sensation among gamers. The development of such a game will last 3-6 months and more with 3 developers involved in the process.”
It is possible that a release could happen sometime this year. Until then, there is nothing really concrete to discuss. Unfortunately, it is a waiting game for fans. Probably coordinating with everyone’s schedules should be factored in as well.
But there is good news for those who are missing Ash Williams and his Ghostbeaters. Everyone knows that Bruce Campbell has a new gig hosting Ripley’s Believe It or Not! for the Travel Channel. 10 episodes of the new series have been ordered and he is filming in Orlando. Lucy Lawless has been working on several TV series including Tidelands and My Life Is Murder which will be seen in the U.S. on Acorn TV sometime this year.
Ray has an upcoming movie called Tone-Deaf which is in post-production and Dana DeLorenzo is in Friendsgiving which is also in post and will be released this year. Bruce and Dana will also be doing the convention circuit this summer.
If you live in the San Francisco area, you can catch Bruce at Sketchfest on Jan. 20 where he will be holding court on all things related to Evil Dead 2. You can purchase tickets by clicking on this link.
