Dead by Daylight’s next update is on the way, adding Sadako from Ringu – which Western audiences will know as The Ring – as the new killer. There are now over 30 DLCs available for Behaviour Interactive’s asymmetrical horror game – at least doubling the content that was available at launch. So, is it time for a sequel? In an interview with The Loadout, Dead by Daylight’s creative director Dave Richard confirms that there are no plans for a new Dead by Daylight game.
Dead by Daylight has been around for six years now and we asked Richard how long the original game will continue to be updated and whether there were any plans for the studio to release a full-on Dead by Daylight 2.
“Dead by Daylight as a project and as a team has been built to be supported for as long as we could,” Richard says. “If there are players supporting it and a growing community, it makes sense to us to continue to update and support the title rather than move to a sequel. As we have seen through the years with the massive visual rework of maps and characters, with effort and know-how it is possible to update a title even in major ways to support it even longer.”
While there aren’t any plans for a sequel to Dead by Daylight, it seems that Richard and the team still plan on updating the game with new content for several years to come, and this new Sadako update is just the latest DLC from the team. .
Sadako will be added to Dead by Daylight’s roster of iconic killers on March 8, and alongside her as a survivor will be Yoichi, who you might remember as a child in the original Ringu films. He’s now all grown up, however.
Keep your eyes peeled for more from our interview with Richard coming next week.
