In a followup tweet, the team thanks fans for their “understanding and support” and promises “new character updates, [information on] pre-order availability, and the next gameplay video featuring Bruce Campbell.”
Back in June, a new trailer for Evil Dead: The Game showed off various characters pulled from across the franchise as well as Bruce Campbell himself providing narration.
