Leatherface, the notorious cannibal from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, joined Dead by Daylight on Sept. 14, 2017. In this half-chapter DLC centered on the long-lasting horror franchise, The Cannibal turned one of many (now) twenty-nine killers current inside the game. But, might Bubba Sawyer be departing from Dead by Daylight, given the upcoming launch of the game based mostly on The Texas Chainsaw Massacre?
It’s fairly potential. In truth, there’s positively precedent for it.
In August of 2021, it was introduced that the collaboration between Dead by Daylight and Stranger Things was coming to an unceremonious finish. It’d appear as if this occurred as a result of Netflix wished to restrict their third-party offers, what with their current shift to creating and internet hosting video games.
If the notorious killer was, in actual fact, leaving, it wouldn’t even be the primary time he’s been in sizzling water. Earlier this yr, cosmetics associated to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre had been faraway from Dead by Daylight as a consequence of racist harassment. Granted, on this particular occasion it wasn’t associated to the rightsholders, but when Behaviour Interactive is given a option to maintain Leatherface or toss him, they might determine he’s not well worth the bother.
It actually comes all the way down to the rightsholders, although. If the individuals who personal The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and who licensed it out to Gun Interactive for the upcoming launch need to pull it from Dead by Daylight, they’ll. This isn’t an issue unique to Leatherface. Evil Dead: the Game launched again in May, and if the rightsholders for that franchise wished to tug him, they’d even be effectively inside their rights.
