Dead by Daylight” will introduce its ninth killer and new survivor soon following the recent addition of The Huntress in the game. Now, it looks like hardcore gamers of the popular asymmetric survival horror video game have already one killer in mind – Pennywise the Clown from Stephen King’s terrifying novel, “It.”

New killer and survivor likely out soon

There is only one more day left in August, and this means, the “ber” months are here. With Halloween just around the corner, fans of the multiplayer (4v1) horror title are now anticipating another DLC that will bring in the addition of the ninth killer and new survivor to celebrate the occasion.

Pennywise as next killer

The most popular choice of a licensed killer among the players so far is Pennywise the Clown, the horrifying character from “It.” King’s horror novel turned drama/thriller movie of the same title is set to hit US theaters on September 8.

Fans are getting the chills from watching the film’s official trailer and perhaps the light bulb idea of playing as Pennywise the Clown in “Dead by Daylight” sounds a lot more horrifyingly fun.

The Actor tipped as next killer

On the other hand, a recent leak purports the introduction of “The Actor” otherwise known as Ghostface from Wes Craven’s blockbuster film franchise, “Scream.”

Apparently, many images went live a few days ago indicating some daily ritual called Rite of the Imitate along with its goals, surprise attacks, and rewards.

Also, there are also some images found on the game’s Wiki page suggesting that the ninth killer is known as “The Actor” alongside new survivor Sidney Prescott. Notably, anyone can make the changes or edits on the Wiki page, so this information is not valid to support this claim.

Developer says the leaked images are fake

Game pundits took the initiative to contact game developer Behaviour Interactive regarding this leak and verify this information.

Mathieu Cote quickly responded in an email debunking the rumors and said that the images are apparently fake.

Although there was an instance in the past that some info on things in development found its way online, the latest images are totally a fabrication meant to troll the fans.

The Lullaby for the Dark chapter just added the Huntress as the new killer in "Deady by Daylight." So, it is likely that players will not get any update from the developer yet until around late September or early October when the Halloween feel is in the air.
