As many of you know, the next Dead by Daylight Chapter, the Chapter 16, will coincide with the anniversary of the game, and the anniversary of the game always coincides with a surprise for the users.
With the first anniversary there was the gift of the ‘A Lullaby for the Dark’ Chapter, the second anniversary saw the arrival of the in-game store with the skins, while with the third are arrived the dedicated server ones with Ghostface.
On February 27 It was released the first trailer of what will be a “spiritual sequel” of a horror movie from the 90s: Candyman. It will be released in June, precisely on the 12th, just during the week in which the new Chapter of DBD will most likely be released. Could this be the new killer who will join in the Dead by Daylight Killer Roaster? Maybe even with crossplay/new mode? (glitches with multiple killers/survivors in the same game are not simple glitches, but are generated because the game, in one way or another, allowed it).
In addition to the release date of the film very close to the release date of the next chapter of Dead by Daylight, there is also another really very curious thing, Tony Todd, the actor who played Candyman in the two films of the 90s, follows Dead by Daylight on Twitter:
It's not the first time that the first clues of collaboration between Dead by Daylight and some licensed content started from Twitter, it also happened, for example, with Stranger Things: the actors who play Steve Harrington and Nancy Wheeler in the TV series, just before the release of the chapter, they have followed the Dead by Daylight twitter account.
After Michael Myers, Leatherface, Freddy Krueger, The Pig from Saw, Ghostface & Demogorgon, will be Candyman the next licensed killer who will arrive on Dead by Daylight?
Meanwhile, I leave you some very interesting info about this film: Candyman 2020, conceived and produced by Jordan Peele with the direction of Nia DaCosta, is set 30 years after the original of 1992. Yahya Abdul-Mateen is Anthony McCoy, the child who in the first film he was kidnapped by Candyman. In this film, McCoy returns to his old neighborhood, awakening the spirit of ‘evil’. The film will also feature Tony Todd, who played Candyman in the 1992 movie.
This is the official synopsis of the film: "As far as residents of Chicago’s Cabrini Green can remember, neighborhood were terrified of word of mouth about a ghost story about a supernatural serial killer with a hook instead of a hand, evoked by those who had the courage to look in the mirror and repeat his name five times. Today, a decade after the Cabrini towers were demolished, visual artist Anthony McCoy (Abdul-Mateen II) and his fiancée, director of the art gallery Brianna Cartwright (Tayonah Parris), decide to move to a luxury condominium in Cabrini, now completely transformed thanks to gentrification and inhabited by wealthy millennials. Stalled and uninspired, Anthony meets an old Cabrini Green resident who talks to him about the tragically horrible and true story behind the legend of Candyman. Anxious to maintain his status in the art world of Chicago, Anthony begins to explore these macabre details in his studio as a source of inspiration for his paintings, unwittingly opening the door that unleash a terrifying wave of viral violence, putting him on a collision course with his own destiny."
What do you think? Would you like to have Candyman on Dead by Daylight? And are you going to see the film coming out in June?
*March 3rd Edit: Tony Todd liked the LBD post on Twitter!
*April 4th Edit: the Candyman film was postponed to September due to the Covid-19. Will the Candyman Chapter also be postponed from June to September?
