1974’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is a staple of modern horror movie history, a horrifying tale of unmitigated brutality inspired by various stories from the post-war American midwest. Its iconic killer, Bubba “Leatherface” Sawyer, is right up there with the likes of Michael Myers and Jason Vorhees, and that star power has gotten him several cameo roles in games like Mortal Kombat X and Dead By Daylight. Soon, though, he and his family will have a game all their own. Here’s everything we know about the release date of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre game.

The game is slated to be an asymmetrical multiplayer experience, in a similar vein to Dead By Daylight and Friday the 13th: The Game. Four players will be Survivors trapped on the Sawyer estate or in a nearby location like a gas station or slaughterhouse and are tasked with finding the way out. Meanwhile, three players will take on the roles of the Sawyer family, Leatherface included, and attempt to hunt down and kill all of the Survivors. Leatherface will, of course, be wielding his classic chainsaw, while the other members of the family will utilize improvised weapons like meat hooks and hammers.
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is sure to be fun for the whole family when it releases in 2023.
