Dead By Daylight Chapter 28: Release Date Window, Leaks, News and More

Dead by Daylight's Chapter 27 - Tools of Torment released in March 2023, featuring the new killer The Skull Merchant and a duo of twin survivors. The major update also included a visual overhaul, changes to perks, and more, leaving players excited for the upcoming Dead by Daylight Chapter 28.

But now that Chapter 27 is in the books, when will Dead by Daylight Chapter 28 come out, and what kind of killer, survivor, or map might it contain? Fans are already asking these questions, so we're here to do our best to answer them. Read on to learn more about what's to come for Dead by Daylight.

Update on 24 March 2023 - This article was updated and checked for the latest news and leaks relating to Chapter 28.

Dead By Daylight Chapter 28 Release Date

Based on the duration of past chapters, we suspect that Dead by Daylight Chapter 28 will release around 7th June 2023.

Given that most chapters are first tested on the Public Test Realm, we would imagine that the Chapter 28 PTB will release about 3 weeks before the aforementioned June date, with the PTB likely starting in the middle of May 2023.

The 28th chapter will also mark Dead by Daylight's 7th anniversary; with the horror game's anniversary traditionally taking place every June with a whole heap of rewards.

Dead By Daylight Chapter 28 Leaks - Alien Licensed Killer?

Dead By Daylight Chapter 28 will be the game's 7th-anniversary chapter, meaning that it will likely include a ton of new content to celebrate the occasion. Last year's anniversary chapter introduced The Dredge and Haddie Kaur in an original chapter, Roots of Dread.

While this year's Chapter 28 could be another original chapter, it doesn't seem like that's the case. Known Dead by Daylight leaker and data miner stated that the next chapter will likely be a licensed chapter - and that it might be a collaboration with the Alien franchise.

"On the information I currently have, the next chapter to celebrate the game's seventh anniversary will be in collaboration with a license," Leaks by Daylight said in a blog post on their website. "And always speaking of leaks, there is another one that points to having Alien inside the game from Behaviour Interactive."

If the Alien were the killer, it's questionable as to who the survivor would be; perhaps Dead by Daylight could release a partial chapter, like they did with The Cenobite/Pinhead, before releasing another paragraph with an original survivor like Mikaela Reid.

If the chapter doesn't turn out to be Alien, it's likely that we could see some of the other popular franchises fans have been asking for to come to Dead by Daylight, such as Five Nights at Freddy's.

That's all we know so far about Dead By Daylight Chapter 28, including the potential killer, survivor, map, and more. Stay tuned here for more information as we near the chapter's release date.
