Evil Dead: The Game is getting ready for arrival on a host of platforms, but the Nintendo Switch will not be one of them, at least at launch. The initial release date for Evil Dead: The Game is set for May 13th, 2022. This is following a brief delay for these initial launch platforms. On May 13th, Evil Dead fans will be able to purchase the game on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and on PC via Epic Games Store. However, if you’re waiting for the Nintendo Switch version of Evil Dead there’s good news and bad news.
When is Evil Dead Coming to Switch?
Let’s start with the good news. That is that the Saber Interactive has confirmed that Evil Dead: The Game is coming to the Switch. The bad news is that we don’t know exactly when other than sometime in the future. Whether that’s the near future or the far future is anyone’s guess, but Saber Interactive has made the statement that they’ve needed more time for development on the Nintendo console. What’s even better for Switch fans is that there’s still a note on the Evil Dead: The Game website that lists the Switch under the platforms the game is coming to with a note that says “Also coming soon to Nintendo Switch.”
So what does “Soon” mean? That’s kind of the bad news here, that means that we don’t actually know the exact date for the Switch launch of Evil Dead: The Game. Soon could be a month from now, it could be three months, it could be more. Saber Interactive has not made an official announcement for the Switch release date on Evil Dead: The Game. The game did see a brief delay from 2021 to 2022 so it’s not really clear whether they were having trouble with this particular version of the game or were dedicated to really making the launch platforms shine when it comes to the final polish for the game.
While the Nintendo Switch isn’t exactly know for multiplayer games, the Evil Dead is a multiplayer-centric title. However, it was recently revealed that Evil Dead: The Game could be played in Single Player as well.
Evil Dead is slated for launch on the aforementioned platforms on May 13th, 2022 but the Switch version is still listed as “Soon” for now.
