A prominent Dead By Daylight leaker has sparked speculation within the community by suggesting the arrival of a new killer in Chapter 30.5’s midchapter update. While details remain unconfirmed by developer Behaviour Interactive, the leak was delivered alongside credible information about other planned content, adding weight to the possibility.

The leaked information, shared via Twitter, outlines several expected additions for the midchapter update. This includes a new original survivor, a rework of the Swamp map, and a long-awaited FOV slider for players. There was also a mention of “killer updates” beyond those for existing characters like The Onryo, The Hillbilly, and The Blight.

No specifics regarding the potential new killer’s identity, power, or lore came with the claim. Additionally, the leaker even says the information is subject to change, which is why we want to emphasize the lack of official confirmation from Behaviour Interactive. This kind of leak makes me cautious, and if the leaker wasn’t well-known, we’d say it was fake.

While past leaks have proven accurate on occasion, it’s crucial to remember they are unofficial and should be treated with a grain of salt. Only Behaviour Interactive holds the keys to Dead By Daylight’s future, and official announcements remain the definitive source of information. Nevertheless, it’s not unlikely that we get a new killer in the midseason update.

Dead By Daylight players can expect speculation to intensify as more details and official reveals emerge. Personally, because Chucky was the last big killer revealed, I’d say his bride is coming next. Chucky’s bride, Tiffany Valentine, is likely the next one to come up. This gives players a female version of a killer doll that is canonically known to kill others. Still, we’ll have to wait and see, but this month should bring confirmation or a debunk.
