Dead Cells is an extraordinary 2D roguelite-Metroidvania game. It won Action Game of the Year in 2018, getting free updates every 2-3 months since its release; roughly 5 years.

Developers Motion Twin and Evil Empire have announced that there will be no more content drops for the game after the next update.

Motion Twin stated that the decision to halt updates was to ensure the game loop would not become stale. They wanted the game to go out on a high note, especially after the recent collaboration DLC, Dead Cells: Return to Castlevania.

This is the official announcement made on the game’s Steam page:

“Update 35 for Dead Cells marks the end of our creative journey on the game. After an incredible 5-year collaboration in bringing additional content to Dead Cells’ live-ops, Evil Empire will be pursuing new adventures and we can’t wait to see what they come up next. This comes after much reflection, especially following the awesome success of the “Return to Castlevania” DLC last year. Our commitment to avoiding the “more of the same” trap and keeping Dead Cells fresh and original has led us to this point; as we’ve seen with other long-running series, it’s crucial not to overextend and risk diminishing the unique charm that makes Dead Cells special to us all. This change explains the recent quiet period on updates, as concluding such a partnership required careful planning to ensure a smooth process for everyone, including the community. As always, we will of course continue to find solutions to make sure that all quality of life issues and bugs are properly fixed across all platforms to provide a worthy experience to all of you.”

Despite this, Dead cells is not done yet. It was revealed there will be an animated series as well as a board game on the way. As far as Update 35 goes it is still in the works according to the developers.
