Evil Dead The Game GOTY edition isn’t the end for the horror game

Saber Interactive's Evil Dead The Game GOTY edition does bring all of asymmetrical horror game's content together, but it's not necessarily the end of the line.

The aptly-named Evil Dead The Game GOTY Edition is almost here and we can’t wait. But, what does this seemingly complete iteration of Evil Dead The Game mean for the future? With the release of this GOTY Edition coinciding with the game’s release on Steam – and the fact that Evil Dead The Game “could pop up” like a Kandarian Demon on Nintendo Switch – surely there’s life in the old dog, yet. Well, although this seems like the end of the road for Evil Dead The Game, Saber Interactive has revealed that this isn’t necessarily the case – but, it’s something that’s really up to the fans.

Speaking exclusively to The Loadout about the past, the present, and the future of Evil Dead The Game, chief creative officer Tim Willits has explained that while this GOTY edition does bring all the existing content available for the Evil Dead game together, there’s nothing to say Saber Interactive’s finished with Ash, the Deadites, and anything Kandarian just yet.

When asked whether the release of Evil Dead The Game GOTY Edition was the ‘end-point’ of the game, Willits explained that while “the Game of the Year edition does wrap everything [Saber Interactive has] done so far”, the developer is “going to continue Quality of Life updates, and then [it is] going to examine what the fans want”.

If you’re wondering what that means, here’s Willit’s answer in full to our question on Saber Interactive’s next steps regarding Evil Dead The Game.

“The Game of the Year Edition does wrap up everything we’ve done so far… You know, what we’re going to do is we’re moving to Steam – there’s a billion people on that platform. We’re going to continue Quality of Life updates, and then we’re going to examine what the fans want… Based on feedback, [and] based on what people are asking for, we will then make decisions from there.”

Willits did reiterate that he “can’t promise anything right now” after this, but added that Saber Interactive really is “in the ‘figure out what the fans want, figure out exactly where the game is'” phase. Then, it will “plan on what [it] does in [it’s] next steps”.

Chief narrative officer Craig Sherman, who we also had the pleasure of chatting to about Evil Dead The Game, added towards the end of our interview that “anything [Saber Interactive] can do to continue the excitement of the fans is what’s on [it’s] list”.

So, while we don’t know what the plan is for Evil Dead The Game, it’s safe to say that the fight for Ash and his pals against the Kandarian Demons and Deadites isn’t over just yet.

For those of you out there who haven’t managed to play in a while, here’s what you’re missing out on:

If you’re wondering where it might go, though, we also asked Willits if there was anything he would like to explore with Evil Dead The Game in the future – a bucket list item, of sorts – and he responded with the following:

“I think, for me, it would be fun to explore the post-apocalyptic Evil Dead world. Remember at the end of Ash vs Evil Dead, he had that vision of the future? You know, that would be fun to explore.”

We don’t know about you, but that sounds like it could be a lot of fun – and it would give Saber Interactive a little more wiggle room when it comes to being creative, as there’s some unexplored territory out there in the post-apocalyptic Evil Dead future. Sherman also agreed with this idea, and we’re certain he has some interesting ideas of how it could tie into the unique narrative being told through Evil Dead The Game.

So, while we’re not saying that this will certainly happen, there’s clearly a desire to do more with Evil Dead The Game at Saber Interactive. However, whether we do get more or not depends on what the fans want – and, we can imagine, how engaged they are with the game itself.
