Motion Twin and Evil Empire have kept the game going with continuous updates featuring new areas, modes, and weapons. Its most recent was the Return to Castlevania DLC, the first new piece of game-related media for Konami’s franchise in years.
Over the years, Dead Cellsbecame a hub for other roguelikes. Hyper Light Drifter, Hollow Knight, and others appeared as DLC skins, and mechanics from those titles came over with them.
Evil Empire will continue to support Dead Cells through 2025.
