Dead by Daylight to reveal Resident Evil killer and survivor this May

Dead by Daylight has always been full of surprises, but that didn’t stop fans and players from losing their minds at the teaser that revealed a Resident Evil chapter will be coming to the asymmetrical horror game this May.

The teaser was shown during Capcom’s Resident Evil showcase, where no new games were announced, but quick looks at the upcoming Resident Evil Village’s new mode Mercenaries, as well as a new Netflix trailer for the CGI series, Infinite Darkness.

The showcase really picked up when Game Director of Dead by Daylight, Mathieu Cote, arrived to wish Capcom a happy 25 years of horror goodness and of course, explain a little more about just what the teaser trailer was all about.

“Over the years, our 4v1 multiplayer action game, Dead by Daylight, has become the Hall of Fame of horror. Today I am excited to say that Resident Evil will soon be joining our universe.” Cote said during the Showcase.

He continued, “tune into our 5th anniversary broadcast on May 25th EDT for the reveal of the Resident Evil chapter coming to Dead By Daylight this June.”

Speculation on just who the Killer and Survivor is began the moment the teaser was revealed. Personally, we think it’ll be Leon Kennedy and Mr X to get newer fans who’ve only played the remake of Resident Evil 2, but maybe with Legendary Skins that’ll give players more options to play other characters like Ada Wong or Claire Redfield.

But in reality… who knows what Dead by Daylight will bring to the table? Not us!

Not until May 25th, where the new Killer and Survivor will be revealed on Dead by Daylight’s Twitch channel.

In the meantime, players of both Resident Evil and Dead by Daylight will just have to keep busy which, considering how well-loved the new Killer The Trickster and Tall-AF Lady Dimistrescu is, shouldn’t be much of a problem.
