While it feels longer, Dead by Daylight is only celebrating its 7th anniversary this month. Across the multiple original chapters alongside the licensed partnerships for the online experience, Behaviour Interactive is still conjuring new ways for players to enjoy the title. The last major collaboration for the game came from a team-up with Capcom featuring Resident Evil’s Albert Wesker last year.
However, Behaviour Interactive shares a new effort to branch out its IP. In an announcement earlier this year, it was revealed Dead by Daylight is being adapted into a live-action film. The movie is said to be in conjunction with Blumhouse Productions and James Wan’s Atomic Monsters. But, that is only one collaboration in the works for Dead by Daylight.
As part of the 7th Anniversary livestream, Behaviour Interactive has shared a new title is in the works with Supermassive Games & Midwinter Entertainment. You can view the segment of the livestream in the video below (1:09:10):
“We’re obviously all horror fans here at Supermassive and massive fans of Dead by Daylight. Now we’re thrilled to be collaborating with Behaviour on a brand new single-player interactive story game set in the terrifying omniverse of Dead by Daylight,” Supermassive Games studio director Steve Goss says. “This is a whole new way for horror fans to experience Dead by Daylight and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with the world.”
Additionally, executive producer Traci Tufte shares: “We’ve been working hard to blunt the tension, agency and branching storytelling of a supermassive game together with Dead by Daylight‘s mythology to create an intense narrative experience filled with powerful life or death choices. Our game will be set outside the Entity’s realm and feature the story of a new cast of characters who players will follow for an unprecedented experience beyond the fog.”
“The themes in our game will center around greed and the lust for power. These will be present in both the gameplay itself and in the stories of the characters who were tempted to enter a strange new corner of the Entity’s realms. Our vision is to create a multiplayer PvE experience where instead of facing off against each other, up to four players can team up, enter another one of the Entity’s realms, and take on a host of deadly enemies that occupy it,” Midwinter Entertainment producer Audrey Mladina explains.
