Though Chapter 22 might be live, and the Dead by Daylight Christmas event might be just on the horizon, we're not expecting any huge new Chapter 23 details until the new year. If we're lucky dataminers might find some clues from the upcoming Bone Chill Christmas event. Fingers crossed.

2 November 2021 -

It's heavily rumoured that The Conjuring will be Dead By Daylight's next big licensed crossover, as summed up by Dead By Daylight's Reddit page moderator, u/epicandetc2234:

Also, some of Chapter 23's map assets were leaked, and since we don't think we're going to get original maps for a while (according to Mathieu Cote atl) some users have put two and two together that Chapter 23 might be The Conjuring.

The initial rumour started when several Reddit users on the Dead By Daylight Leaks Reddit page received assets hinting at the crossover. After being uploaded, these posts were immediately deleted. However, nothing is ever lost on the internet, as shown by u/Maple_Syrup97 who captured a leaked early build of the supposed location.

You can view the image here but, the build seems to be of a graveyard, acting as a re-imagining of the setting showcased in 2018's The Conjuring spin-off, The Nun. The spooky figure is also expected to be a killer as well. We're still some ways out, so take this news with a pinch of salt.

Chapter 23 Release Date

Unsurprisingly there is no official release date for Chapter 23 just yet. Couple this together with the fact that new content is normally tested on the Dead By Daylight PTR before going live and it's harder than ever to give a specific date for when we can expect to see the next chapter go live.

That said the game is fairly predictable when it comes to new content releases. If you're looking for a rough estimate, we can likely expect to see Chapter 23 go live in March 2022. Let us quickly explain why. The time between new chapters has historically been 3 months. The time between the Resident Evil chapter going live on June 15 and Hellraiser on September 7, was 84 days.

It means we can expect to see Chapter 23 go live in early March 2022.

Chapter 23 New Killer

There's been talk for some time about a Candyman chapter. We've spoken about it before (more info on the link above), but the best possible time to launch a Candyman chapter would have surely been in the midst of the new film coming out in 2021. But instead, we got a Hellraiser-themed chapter before Halloween.

Beyond this, there have also been plenty of teasers pointing towards killers from all sorts of film and game licenses. Given that Chapter 22 is expected to introduce a new, original killer; Chapter 23's introduction of a licensed foe would mark a nice change.

It's behind me, isn't it?

In fact, one MASSIVE leak (which seems to be fairly reputable) has indicated that Chapter 23 will add The Nun from The Conjuring as a new killer.

That said, who knows what the twisted minds at Behaviour Interactive come up with.

Chapter 23 New Survivor

Given that we're anticipating the next killer to be from a licensed property like that of The Conjuring series, the most obvious survivors could be paranormal investigators, Ed and Lorraine Warren.

This would be interesting because the two individuals were world-renowned, real-life people, marking the first time real people would be introduced into the Dead By Daylight.

However, implementing real people may or may not sit well with fans, especially since Lorraine Warren only passed two years ago. Still, that hasn't stopped the eight or so films within The Conjuring Universe. But, we'll have to see who Behaviour Interactive decides to incorporate.
