Although the clip offers very little insight into who the next killer is, it has not prevented fans from speculating. At the time of writing this, the most popular theory is that Dead by Daylight is taking inspiration from Japanese horror, with the imagery signposting this as a possibility. However, the clip reveals very little so it is likely to be interpreted in a multitude of ways. With this, many fans have argued that it could be Chucky (the killer in Child’s Play). This is reasonable as Dead by Daylight has ventured into the horror film universe with the release of Michael Myers, from John Carpenter's Halloween, and Freddy Krueger from the A Nightmare on Elm Street film series.
Despite the variety of theories, all fans can do now is wait. From past experiences, Behaviour Interactive will only leave fans a few days before releasing further information. But, at this time the developers have been very quiet. Watch the clip below and let us know your thoughts in the comments.
