Leaked Dead by Daylight Killer Seems Even More Likely Now

A recent tease from Behaviour Interactive seems to lend credibility to previous leaks about a future Dead by Daylight .

Highlights

  • Behaviour's tease confirmed a Dungeons & Dragons crossover with Dead by Daylight, potentially hinting at Vecna as a new Killer.
  • The leak predicting Vecna also suggested Castlevania's Dracula could be next.
  • If Dracula does join the game, it's possible it will be part of a larger Castlevania crossover.

A recent tease by Behaviour Interactive has lent credibility to a previous Dead by Daylight leak that claimed Castlevania's version of Dracula is a future Killer. Dead by Daylight has managed to stay successful for so long thanks to regular content updates that add new content to the asymmetrical multiplayer horror game. While all Dead by Daylight content updates are appreciated, the ones that generate the most buzz are those that add new Killers to the game.

New Dead by Daylight Killers are exciting because they add iconic horror movie characters to the game and give players new skills to master. Behaviour recently started teasing a crossover Killer that will be pulled from the world of Dungeons & Dragons, and it's that tease that has potentially clued fans in on a Killer that's supposedly coming to the game even further down the road.

It's long been rumored that Dungeons & Dragons' Vecna will be joining the Dead by Daylight roster of Killers. The new teaser has confirmed that the Dungeons & Dragons crossover is happening, with more information coming on May 14, but it stopped short of revealing Vecna. However, the fact that a D&D crossover is happening at all lends credibility to an old leak that claimed Castlevania's Dracula is coming to Dead by Daylight. The same leak accurately predicted Chucky and Alan Wake, and now it seems to have accurately predicted Vecna.

Dead by Daylight Leaker Claims Castlevania's Dracula is on the Way

Assuming Dead by Daylight does add Vecna to the game as the leak suggested, it seems highly likely that Dracula from Castlevania will be next up to bat. The leak has accurately predicted multiple Killers in a row, so it's safe to say that the leaker, Gumpy887, has legitimate insider information somehow. What makes this all even easier to believe is Konami's willingness to license its franchises and characters to others.

Konami isn't shy about licensing its IP, allowing its popular franchises to pop up in other games. That being said, the character Dracula is technically in the public domain, so one might wonder why Behaviour would cut a deal with Konami just to get the company's version of the famous vampire. Like with other Dead by Daylight crossovers, it seems likely that Dracula would just be the tip of the iceberg. One has to imagine that the crossover will likely extend to cosmetics and perhaps even a new map and new Survivor, making the Castlevania crossover more worth it for Behaviour, though all that's been so far is Dracula.

Dead by Daylight is an asymmetrical multiplayer horror game in which one player takes on the role of a Killer and the others play as “Survivors.” The Killer must hunt the Survivors, while the Survivors must escape.
