Behavior Interactive, a Canadian studio, developed Dead by Daylight, an online video game that is both asymmetric-multiplayer and survival-horror.

In this one-versus-four game, one player takes on the part of a deadly Killer while the other four assume the roles of Survivors. The Killer’s mission is to capture each Survivor and sacrifice them to an evil power known as The Entity through impaling on hooks.

On the other hand, Survivors must evade being caught and activate five generators to open the exit gates. The game was released on Windows in 2016; PS4 & Xbox One in 2017; Switch in 2019; Android, iOS, PS5, Stadia, and Xbox Series X/S in 2020.

Behavior Interactive published the game from 2016 to 2018. An Italian company, 505 Games, published the Nintendo Switch Versions, while Deep Silver published the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S. The game was a commercial success for the publishers and developers, attracting more than 50 million players globally.

The short answer to this question is NO. There is no Dead by Daylight release date and there isn’t going to be one. In an interview with The Loadout, the creative director of Dead by Daylight, Dave Richards said –

“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.”

Richard and his team have no plans to create a sequel to Dead by Daylight. However, they intend to provide new material for Dead by Daylight over multiple years.

The most recent update has included a New Killer – The Knight – and Survivor – Vittorio Toscano, as well as a brand-new map available to all players: Shattered Square.

Rather than releasing a follow-up to Dead by Daylight, the developers are concentrating on refining the existing game through regular updates, which include revised systems, mechanics, and visuals.

Dead by Daylight 2 Rumors and News

One of the biggest Dead by Daylight 2 rumors right now is that the sequel to Dead by Daylight has a release window of 2023 to 2024, which is a blatant lie and a big fat rumor.

As mentioned above, Dave Richards, the creative director of the game has already confirmed that the studio has no plans to develop a sequel to the hit game.

The studio will keep updating and bringing new stuff into the already successful game. They undoubtedly will not want to miss out on the opportunity to juice out more money from the game.

Dead by Daylight is doing just fine and its player base is continuously growing, so it makes no sense that a sequel to the game will be released in the near future.

Also, it is rumored that Dead By Daylight Chapter 27 PTB will be released on February 15th, which would allow DBD fans to enjoy it. Additionally, there have been rumors about the upcoming DBD killer and arrivals later in the year.
