The Casting of Frank Stone, a single-player horror experience set in the Dead by Daylight universe, was announced today by Behaviour and Supermassive Games at the 2023 Game Awards. While the upcoming title is set in the Dead by Daylight universe, the announcement has left some fans wondering if the game will actually be canon to Dead by Daylight. Let's take a look at whether The Casting of Frank Stone will be canon to Dead by Daylight's universe, or if the two games' stories are not linked.

Is The Casting Of Frank Stone Canon To Dead by Daylight?

It's likely that The Casting of Frank Stone will, in fact, be canon to Dead by Daylight's stories. Dead by Daylight has a history, albeit a short one, of confirming that spinoffs are at least somewhat canon to DBD itself.

Prior to The Casting of Frank Stone, there has only been one DBD spinoff game - Hooked on You, a dating sim - and developers confirmed that at least some aspects of the story were canon, despite containing tons of jokes and an upbeat, tropical atmosphere in stark contrast to Dead by Daylight's trials' more eerie one (though of course, it wasn't devoid of references to meat hooks and sacrifices).

Then there are other types of DBD spinoff media, like The Legion comics by Titan Comics, which are also canon to the Dead by Daylight universe.

If Hooked on You and the Legion comics are canon, then surely The Casting of Frank Stone will be too; as a more serious look at Dead by Daylight's universe, the game will probably delve deeper into lore that impacts DBD's Entity's Realm and the characters within it, even if it doesn't take place there.
