Why is stranger things leaving dead by daylight?

That said, it seems like the characters are leaving because Dead By Daylight's license to use them is expiring meaning that they can no longer sell content related to the Netflix series. This is a problem that many games that use licensed content run into after their licenses run out. Game RantDead by Daylight: Everything You Need to Know About Stranger Things Leaving the Game

The game is set to be revealed on Thursday at 10.30am PT / 1.30 pm ET / 6.30 pm BST via an in-game Warzone event.

“At 10:30 AM PT on August 19, the Battle of Verdansk will begin in Call of Duty: Warzone,” Activision said.

“Join the battle and experience the worldwide reveal of Call of Duty: Vanguard live in-game.

“Be the first to the fight and be rewarded – report to Warzone and play in any playlist between 9:30 AM and 10:29 AM PT and prepare to participate in a limited-time Double XP, Double Weapon XP, and Double Battle Pass XP event before the battle begins.”

Call of Duty: Vanguard promotional material leaked last week, with artwork revealing several editions, plans for an open beta and more.

Developer Sledgehammer Games then started officially teasing the game by sending teaser videos to content creators.

Teasers have also begun appearing in-game via Warzone, with winning players being killed off by a mysterious character at the end of matches.

Call of Duty: Vanguard will feature a campaign, multiplayer and Zombies modes set in the European and Pacific theatres of World War II, with its plot centring around the birth of modern allied Special Forces, according to VGC’s sources.

It will also launch alongside an entirely new Warzone map said to be set in the Pacific theatre and significantly larger than the current Verdansk map, VGC reported earlier this summer.

According to Modern Warzone and reputable leaker Tom Henderson, a Call of Duty Vanguard alpha test is scheduled for August 27-29, ahead of a PlayStation beta from September 10-12, and a beta on all platforms from September 16-20.

Discussing the officially unnamed Call of Duty game during an Activision Blizzard earnings call this month, president and chief operating officer Daniel Alegre claimed it will deliver “a great seamless experience for both current and next-gen console players” when it releases during the fourth quarter of 2021.

Activision president Rob Kostich also said Activision feels “really good” about what Sledgehammer is working on.

“The studio itself has never been bigger or stronger, now with its teams in Foster City and Melbourne and also now in Toronto,” he said.

“Across all modes of play, across multiplayer, across campaign and across co-op, development is coming along really well and we’re going to be sharing those details with the community very soon.

“Content wise, it’s a really robust game at launch across all the modes, and the good news for us right now is, we’ve gotten farther ahead on our live ops planning for supporting the community post-launch, and the community should also expect that support to be very, very significant.

“We also have really exciting new plans for Warzone, which Raven is leading,” Kostich added. “Now together with our premium release, we have some really fun, and what I consider the most significant updates, planned for the community across both Warzone and premium as we head into the fall.”

Stranger Things will depart Dead by Daylight in November

PC Gamer 17 August, 2021 - 07:30am

Characters and outfits will be available in a "Last Chance Sale" until they're gone.

The good news is that from August 18 until their removal, the Stranger Things characters—Nancy, Steve, and the Demogorgon—will be on sale for half price, and outfits for all three will also be discounted until September 8.

Nancy, Steve, and The Demogorgon are leaving the Dead by Daylight store in November, but we're not ready to say goodbye just yet.Take part in their legacy before they go - details here: https://t.co/mR2pUJkrOz pic.twitter.com/BMOq1PsE3fAugust 16, 2021

Players who already own the Stranger Things content (or purchase it prior to removal) will continue to have access, with the exception of the Hawkins National Laboratory Map, which will be removed from the game completely. Character-specific perks and achievements will also be adjusted to be generic and thus available to everyone, although if you've already unlocked them, they will remain as is.

It's an unfortunate loss, particularly given the popularity of Stranger Things, but far from unprecedented. Expiring licenses (which I assume is the cause for its removal) has also wreaked havoc with games including Alan Wake, Grand Theft Auto, and Alpha Protocol, among a bevy of others. While licenses for popular games are sometimes renewed, such as with Alan Wake, Netflix may have been reluctant to re-up its deal with Behaviour Interactive because of its recent decision to get into making games on its own.

Call of Duty®: Vanguard - Official Tease

Dead by Daylight teasing Hellraiser additions, removing Stranger Things DLC in November

Eurogamer.net 16 August, 2021 - 05:57pm

Two years after its arrival in Dead by Daylight, Stranger Things is returning to the Upside Down, with all DLC inspired by Netflix's hit show being removed from sale this November. But as Dead by Daylight starts its long goodbye to one franchise, it's preparing to say hello to another, with all signs pointing to the imminent arrival of Hellraiser in-game.

First introduced in September 2019, Dead by Daylight's Stranger Things collaboration ushered in two new survivors - Steve Harrington and Nancy Wheeler - alongside new killer The Demogorgon, and the Underground Complex Map.

For reasons unspecified (although almost certainly licensing-related), The Demogorgon, Nancy, and Steve - plus each characters' respective outfit cosmetics - will no longer be available for purchase in Dead by Daylight's store from 17th November.

Dead by Daylight - Chapter 21 Teaser.

As outlined in developer Behaviour Interactive's announcement post, anyone that owns the DLC will be able to continue using their purchases after that date, but there'll be no stay of execution for the Stranger-Things-themed Underground Complex Map, which is being permanently removed from rotation on 17th November.

Those players suddenly gripped by the desire to purchase Dead by Daylight's Stranger Things DLC collection following today's news, can get 50% off all characters and outfits starting this Wednesday, 18th August. Characters will remain discounted until 17th November, while the outfits sale ends on 8th September. Additionally, there's 60% off the Stranger Things Chapter DLC (available on Steam, Playstation, Xbox, Stadia, and Switch), plus 50% off Dead by Daylight's Stranger Things Edition until 1st September.

When one door closes, though, another opens - and it's looking increasingly likely that this particular new door will have a bunch of sadomasochistic extra-dimensional demons behind it.

Last week, Behaviour released a short teaser video featuring the number 1987 (the year of Hellraiser's release), plus a static-y glimpse of the flower seen in the films. And if that wasn't sufficient evidence, the developer has (as spotted by Polygon) posted additional clues on social media, dropping letters into Twitter images and an audio file that combined to spell the words RAISE HELL. It seems a safe bet Pinhead will be making his Dead by Daylight debut soon.

Matt Wales is a writer and gambolling summer child who won't even pretend to live a busily impressive life of dynamic go-getting for the purposes of this bio. He is the sole and founding member of the Birdo for President of Everything Society.

Plus a "second, smaller-scale game" remains in "full production mode", too.
