Behaviour Interactive, the developers of Dead By Daylight, has been teasing something over on their Twitter account recently and it looks to be the arrival of Pinhead from Hellraiser.

Many Dead By Daylight fans will know that crossovers are a huge part of the game. So, it should come as no surprise that the next crossover to take place in Dead By Daylight will be with another hugely popular horror franchise.

Of course, everything is currently speculation and rumors, so take this information with a grain of salt. But, here’s what we know about Pinhead possibly arriving in Dead By Daylight.

Who Is Pinhead?

Pinhead is the antagonist in the popular horror franchise, Hellraiser. The original Hellraiser movie was released in the late ’80s, 1987 to be precise, and spawned two sequels.

He is also referred to as the ‘Hell Priest’, but was nicknamed Pinhead for obvious reasons…mainly because he has pins in his head.

As one of the most popular horror villains of all time, it will come as no surprise that he may soon make his debut in Dead By Daylight.

Is Pinhead The Next Killer In Dead By Daylight?

The official Dead By Daylight Twitter account has been teasing something for some time now, mainly in the form of letters. Some of which have been subtle and well hidden, whilst others have been a little more obvious.

One fan was able to spot the letter ‘E’ featured in a Dead By Daylight image. The image in question even had a pin sticking out of a board, further adding to the speculation.

Combine the discovery of the letter ‘E’ with the other letters discovered and it spells out ‘RAISE’. A strong indication that the next Dead By Daylight crossover will in fact be with Hellraiser. If this is true, fans can expect the next killer to be Pinhead from the popular horror franchise.

Of course, take this with a grain of salt until it’s officially announced by the developers. But a Hellraiser x Dead By Daylight crossover is looking likely. Plus, with Hellraiser set to receive a reboot, now is the perfect time for the two to collaborate.
