You could argue that Predator Hunting Grounds hasn't exactly set the world alight. It's certainly not reached the heights of other asymmetric online multiplayer game like Dead By Daylight.
But to give illfonic their dues, they have supported the game admirably and have continued to deliver on some new content every few months.
In June the game gave us a new paid DLC which added Isabelle from the movie Predators along with her NRV-E Sniper Rifle. As for the 'free DLC' portion of the June update, fans got another map: Headquarters.
So what's coming next? Well based on the roadmap image shared from developers, there's plenty. Here's everything you need to know.

Predator Hunting Grounds Update 10 Release Date
Unlike seasonal events in videogames, DLC updates are prone to all sorts of different release dates. However, illfonic are fairly regular when it comes to sprinting towards the next release on their content roadmap.
Here's a quick look at when the games previous DLC drops have arrived:
- Update 9 released June 29, 2021
- Update 8 released April 29, 2021
- Update 7 released December 8, 2020
- Update 6 released October 27, 2020
- Update 5 released September 29, 2020
As we can see, the game has historically released content at the end of the month.
The only acception has been Update 7 in December 2020, which was likely brought forward to allow the staff to enjoy the holidays.
Assuming the next DLC follows roughly the same pattern we can likely expect to see Update 10 launch around the end of August 2021. So it could arrive as early as August 24, but more likely Thursday 26 August or Tuesday 31 August.
