Is Ghostface based on real life serial killer, Danny Rolling?

To those who don't, Danny Rolling was a serial killer who killed five students in Gainesville, Florida. He also was the inspiration for Ghostface in scream. So what are the connections with BHVR's Ghostface?

1) Ghostface's real name (Danny Johnson) shares the same first name with Danny Rolling

2) BHVR removed the word Gainesville, replacing it with Roseville. Which is located in Florida, in DBD's lore

3) Like Ghostface, Danny Rolling broke into his victims homes and stabbed them to death

The connections are clear, what do you guys think?

    It seems so. The wiki also says Danny Rolling was Wes Craven's inspiration for the Scream movies.


    Oof nice thought.

    I believe there are just references tho not inspiration.

    It would be really cool to have these kinds of Easter eggs. Like when an obsession exists and both Myers and Laurie are in game Laurie automatically becomes the obsession (or has higher chance) it would be so neat?

    The licensed maps in general need athestic reworks (I think Hawkins is great though). Haddonfield looks rubbish in my opinion. The only recognisable building is the Myers house and even then, the inside looks completely different.
