After a year of original characters is there any consideration to add more licensed characters?
The SAW(registered trademark) Chapter was released back on the 23rd of January this year. It has now been nearly a full year and every new character has been an original creation from Behavior. Kate Denson, Adam Francis, Jeff Johansen, Kenneth "Jeffrey Hawk" Chase the Clown, Rin Yamaoka the Spirit, and Frank / Julie / Susie / Joey the Legion have all been great additions to the game and I think the community has grown a great attachment to all of them.
But I have to wonder if there are any more considerations for liscensed characters from other media. Don't get me wrong I love all the new Killers we have obtained and the new Survivors are wonderful too, but nothing is more exciting than being Laurie Strode running away from Leatherface, or Detective David Tapp hiding from Michael Myers.
I'm not begging for any new characters here but I'd love to know if Behavior has some consideration for other liscensed DLCs. My hope is that (along with famous horror movies like Child's Play, Hellraiser, It, Alien, and Psycho) the developers will consider doing some more video game crossovers akin to Bill from Left 4 Dead. I've seen great suggestions on Reddit for Killers based on Hotline Miami, Party Hard, and Amnesia: The Dark Descent. And while I doubt it will ever happen I'd be overjoyed to have The Wendigo from Until Dawn, the Baker family from Resident Evil 7, or even something as obscure as the Scissorman from Clock Tower.
I don't want to discourage Behavior from making their own original content but I'd be lying if I said that offical liscensed characters attract a lot more attention than "Chinese sweatshop horror knockoffs." I know that I personally became a lot more interested in Dead by Daylight when I heard that Michael Myers was going to be a playable Killer than when "discount Silent Hill" was added to the game.
