After nearly 5 years of service, 4 DLCs, 18 updates, some epic crossovers and a mobile release with Playdigious, Evil Empire will no longer be working on Dead Cells. We are immensely proud of the work we have put into the game, we loved every minute and are very thankful to Motion Twin for trusting us and letting us pay with their baby for so long.
We will really miss working on Dead Cells and in particular we will miss the amazing community. Making new content with you and seeing your reactions to some of our wider additions has been a blast, even if we weren’t always perfect. On that note, we’re sorry for any broken controllers caused by the Derelict Distillery…
The studio went on to say that its Dead Cells team has been refocussing their efforts into “our secret projects, and we’ll be revealing what their crazy minds have been coming up with very soon!”
Dead Cells was originally released for PS4, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox One in August 2018, and arrived on PS5 in June last year. In case you haven’t jumped on board yet, the game takes the form of a 2D side-scrolling romp marrying roguelike and Metroidvania elements, with combat compared to Dark Souls.
