It’s been a long time since we’ve seen a proper game based on the Evil Dead horror series, with the last one being in 2005 – Evil Dead: Regeneration. It’s a shame, because the series actually lends itself well to videogames – fighting zombies and other freaky monsters, featuring a main character with a chainsaw for a hand and a load of quips stolen by Duke Nukem.

That chainsaw-handed main character is Ash Williams, played by Bruce Campbell, who last year revealed to Bloody Disgusting that a new Evil Dead videogame was in production. “They are doing a video game,” he said, “a whole immersive kind of dealio. I’ll be Ash for that, because I wouldn’t want someone else’s voice hamming it up.”

As rumours tend to spread like the Deadites, the most literal interpretation of “immersive” suggested a VR game of some description, something Eurogamer brought up at the time. However, now a year later, Campbell has taken to Twitter to confirm a few details about the still-upcoming and unannounced Evil Dead game – and has said it will not be a VR game. Groovy.
