Dead By Daylight Roadmap (February 2024): All Upcoming Updates and Changes

An overview of Dead by Daylight's Year 8 Roadmap for 2024, including new chapters, updates, and events.
Dead By Daylight Roadmap (February 2024): All Upcoming Updates and Changes

23 February 2024 - We've updated this article to reflect Dead by Daylight's latest roadmap information.

Dead By Daylight Roadmaps, Explained

DBD developers Behavior Interactive are arguably one of the best when it comes to sharing roadmaps for their games, allowing fans to know ahead of time what sort of content they can expect and when.

Aside from the annual Year overview, which is normally fairly topline and shared during their Anniversary celebrations, the developer has also taken to sharing regular monthly or quarterly roadmaps. These semi-regular roadmaps usually provide a bit more granular detail on what live updates players should expect in the near future. From new modes to events, and even collection DLC drops. They may even drop a teaser for upcoming Chapters or Tomes.

Further down this page, you can read up on everything you need to know, from a complete overview of Year 8 (as announced during the last anniversary event) as well as the most recent news.

Dead by Daylight 2024 Roadmap Overview

As we mentioned, Dead by Daylight will sometimes provide a roadmap for the month ahead, and sometimes they give us a little bit more, with a deeper overview of the upcoming 3-6 months. Below we've tried to break everything down into dropdowns for each month in 2024, so you have the full picture. Do note, some months are combined because its unclear when these features will roll out specifically. If more news is announced, we'll update the sections!

Important Note: Everything announced by Behavior Interactive is subject to change.

Updates To Statuses

Killer Tweaks

  • The Hag
  • The Pig
  • The Demogorgon
  • The Clown
  • The Doctor

Perk Updates

Developer Comments:

During the months of March and April, we’re working on releasing a change to the Mangled Status Effect. If you don’t know, the Mangled Status Effect causes reduced Healing Speed, which can compound with various Perks for an oppressive overall effect.

Not unlike the 3-Gen strategy, we recognize that reducing Healing speed can be a viable Killer strategy, especially against a coordinated team. On the other hand, a mechanic that ultimately limits future design is never ideal, especially when so many new elements regularly enter the game.

For instance, it might be difficult to design mechanics centred around healing or create an interesting Perk that reduces healing speed if stacking Mangled effects becomes the most optimal strategy.

On that note, we’re also looking to address the Sloppy Butcher Perk, as it will be impacted by the greater Mangled changes. Look for more details on that closer to its release. We’ve also got a few quality-of-life Tweaks lined up for several Killers, including The Hag, The Pig, The Huntress, The Demogorgon, The Demogorgon, The Clown, and The Doctor. Save those “Nerf Pig” jokes for another day.

April to June 2024 Roadmap

Developer Comments:

"Between April and June, we’ve got more updates in the pipeline. This includes improvements to the Bloodweb, which we can’t share quite yet. Rest assured that we’ve heard your feedback regarding the Bloodweb, and we look forward to making it a more enjoyable and immersive experience. Stay tuned (tm).

We’ve also got a few more Perk updates set to drop, and while we can’t reveal many details now, we’re closely monitoring the feedback surrounding Ultimate Weapon, Adrenaline, and Decisive Strike.

Lastly, we’re coming through with a rework to The Twins, something we originally teased way back when. Well, patience is a virtue as they say, and we’re hoping to see a new and improved version of everybody’s favourite grotesque siblings come summertime. Get your Victor-kickin' shoes ready.

We know this was a long one, so if you’re still with us – thank you. Sincerely. Dead by Daylight wouldn’t be what it is without you, and we hope you’re excited for another year with us in The Fog. In the meantime, check out Dead by Daylight: Alan Wake, now available."
