In a thrilling development, two new games set in the Dead by Daylight universe are currently in production.

For those unfamiliar with Dead by Daylight, it is an asymmetrical horror game that puts four survivors in a race against time to repair an ancient gate and escape the clutches of a relentless killer in a nightmarish hunting ground. These spine-chilling encounters take place within an extradimensional realm controlled by a malevolent spider god known as the Entity, which thrives on despair and suffering. Survivors must not only avoid their imminent gruesome demise but also nurture a fragile flame of hope, as their very souls hang in the balance.
