Evil Dead fans are still morning Bruce Campbell’s retirement from the franchise. Following the cancellation of Ash vs Evil Dead after 3 seasons on Starz, the actor announced that he’s officially through portraying wisecracking, Deadite-slaying Ashley J. Williams. Still, there’s the slightest glimmer of hope for die-hards willing to gobble-up anything Campbell/Evil Dead related.
Fans are wonderfully nit-picky. I can’t talk particulars yet, but I think fans will dig the upcoming incarnations. https://t.co/mEoxxXZzQY

Leighton: I keep getting asked this question by your fans. Maybe you can shed some insight, please. Would you be open to doing motion capture & voice work on an Evil Dead game? Thanks!
Campbell: Fans are wonderfully nit-picky. I can’t talk particulars yet, but I think fans will dig the upcoming incarnations.
There have already been 6 official Evil Dead video game releases; the first was released in 1984 for the Commodore 64 and the most recent was Evil Dead: The Game for iOS, released in 2011. Ash also appeared as a nonplayable character in Telltale Games’ Poker Night 2. Perhaps we’ll get a hint at what’s to come at the upcoming E3 convention in June.
Obviously, we’ll be keeping our ears to the ground in order to bring you all Evil Dead related news as details emerge. Stay tuned!
