Dead by Daylight features numerous horror icons from Michael Myers - the first licensed character in the game - to Ringu's Onryo and Silent Hill's Pyramid Head. Some of these licensed characters have subsequently gotten their own games, with Gun Media's Texas Chain Saw Massacre featuring Leatherface and a Scream game from Until Dawn's studio allegedly in the works. The next character to join the ranks of those killers with their own separate video games could be Michael Myers from Halloween, insiders say.
According to TheTipster, those who own the rights to the Halloween franchise expressed their interest in making a Michael Myers video game. He mentioned that it would likely be a "general asymmetrical horror game."
Yes, Halloween is allegedly getting one, but also I don't know anything solid about it other than the rights holder was looking at expanding into that territory. I'd be extremely surprised if it were anything more than another generic assymetrical horror game also. https://t.co/kzdk0QEcwv— The Tipster (@thetipsterVG) October 5, 2023
This means we would definitely see Michael Myers as the killer, with Laurie Strode as a survivor. There are lots of other survivor characters to choose from in the Halloween franchise, such as Lindsey Wallace.
When Is The Michael Myers Game Coming Out?
Unfortunately, while it's exciting news that Halloween's license owners want to make a game, the less exciting news is that it isn't clear whether a Halloween game is actually in development, or if one will be anytime soon.
"Don't hold your breath on anything I've said here," TheTipster wrote on Twitter. "I don't even know if there's a project in development, just that the rights holder had an interest in pursuing a Halloween video game."
This means we might have to wait a while for a Michael Myers game if one is coming at all.
However, with the Halloween season here, perhaps we could be looking at a fall 2023 announcement date. If more news surrounding the potential upcoming Michael Myers game is announced, we'll be sure to update this article with the newest information.
