Leatherface’s Fate in Dead by Daylight Uncertain as Rumors Swirl

According to information discovered on Dead by Daylight’s Public Test Build (PTB), Leatherface, the renowned murderer from the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series, will be departing the game shortly. Dead by Daylight may be compelled to remove Leatherface from its shop in the near future, as it was with its Stranger Things licence in November 2021.

Being first identified in September 2017, Leatherface is one of Dead by Daylight’s older murderers. The murderer, who has grown famed over the years for his ability to pull people out of the game at any time by camping, has a love-hate relationship with the players. Despite having a very restricted number of cosmetics available owing to being a licenced character, some Leatherface cosmetics have been deleted from Dead by Daylight over the past year, and it now seems that the whole murderer may be removed from the shop.



According to DbdNewsReal on Twitter, who has previously reliably leaked various cosmetics prior to their release, new code has been discovered on Dead by Daylight’s Public Test Build that shows Leatherface will be removed from the game. If this happens, it seems that there are intentions to make Leatherface’s benefits accessible to all murderers in the same manner that Steve, Nancy, and the Demogorgon’s perks were made universal when Stranger Things was removed from Dead by Daylight last year. The code, which is only visible to players who do not possess the Leatherface DLC, refers to his benefits by other names and implies that the character’s licence has either expired or been overwritten.

Although the causes of Leatherface’s potential removal are unknown, it would probably be brought on by the impending asymmetrical Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game, which would undoubtedly include Leatherface as the primary adversary. Stranger Things swiftly appeared in a Smite battle pass after its escape from the domain of the Entity, and it is probable that Leatherface’s withdrawal from the game would likewise be due to him being employed elsewhere.

Dead by Daylight would suffer if Leatherface were to be removed, especially since he was just introduced to the mobile version, but gamers should be aware that he would probably only be removed from the shop, not the whole game. Those who acquired the Leatherface DLC before to his departure would presumably still be able to use him in-game, as was the case when Steve, Nancy, and the Demogorgon were removed from the store. His benefits would be rebranded and made accessible to all players, but new players would not be able to buy or play as Leatherface.
