The collaboration between Candyman and Dead by Daylight has been talked about since the beginning of 2020 due to various interactions between the actor who plays Candyman and the twitter account of Dead by Daylight and LeaksByDaylight.

The film was supposed to be released on June 12, in time for the Chapter with which Dead by Daylight would have celebrated its fourth anniversary, but was postponed to September 25 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and then again to October 16.
With the release of the film in October, the Chapter it could have been released in December, but unfortunately, a couple of hours ago a press release from Universal Pictures published by Variety, announced the third postponement for Candyman's film to a generic 2021.
This means that, in the event that there is indeed a Chapter on Candyman(and it would be strange the opposite after what Tony Todd did on socials about Dead by Daylight), even the Dead by Daylight chapter it has been postponed to a generic 2021. Unless they decide to release it anyway despite the postponement of the film.
For the uninitiated, the film will be a sequel-reboot of the cult horror of the 90s, directed by Nia DaCosta, written by Jordan Peele, Win Rosenfeld, DaCosta, and starring by Yahyah Abdul-Mateen II, Colman Domingo, Teyonah Parris, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, along with Tony Todd and Vanessa Estelle Williams reprising their roles from the original film.
This is the official synopsis:
"For as long as the residents can remember, the housing projects of Chicago's Cabrini Green neighborhood were terrorized by a word-of-mouth ghost story about a supernatural killer with a hook for a hand, easily summoned by those daring to repeat his name five times into a mirror. In the present day, a decade after the last of the Cabrini towers were torn down, a visual artist named Anthony McCoy and his girlfriend, a gallery director named Brianna Cartwright, moved into a luxury loft condo in Cabrini, now gentrified beyond recognition and inhabited by the upwardly mobile millennials. With Anthony's painting career on the brink of stalling, a chance encounter with a Cabrini Green old-timer exposes Anthony to the tragically horrific nature of the true story behind the Candyman. Anxious to maintain his status in the Chicago art world, Anthony begins to explore these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for paintings, unknowingly opening a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifyingly viral wave of violence that puts him on a collision course with destiny."
