If a recent leak is to be believed, then a Dead By Daylight dating sim seems to be in the works from Behaviour Interactive.
As shared by DBDLeaks on Twitter, a post on r/LeaksAndRumors shows that a trademark has been registered for a Dead By Daylight dating sim. The title is Hooked On You: A Dead By Daylight Dating Sim, and was filed last week on February 16.
As it’s just a trademark filing, there’s no other information on what this might actually be for. It obviously points towards a dating sim. But it’s unclear if it’ll be additional content to the main game, or a completely separate game. And considering Dead By Daylight so heavily relies on established horror IP, there’s also the question of who would be featured in the game.
A dating sim would be the perfect fit for the game’s community though. The asymmetric multiplayer game is incredibly popular with the LGBTQIA+ community. Horror is often popular in queer circles because people can relate to the othering of the ‘monsters’. So a dating sim would certainly be very welcome by many.
The next addition to the world of Dead By Daylight is Sadako from the Japanese cult classic Ringu. Sadako Rising continues the story of Yoichi Asakawa, a character from the original film. She joins the Smash Bros of horror games alongside the ranks of characters like Pyramid Head from Silent Hill, and Freddy Krueger from Nightmare on Elm Street.
