Year 6 for the asymmetrical multiplayer game has so far featured two chapters: ‘Chapter 22: Portrait of a Murder’ featured an original killer known as The Artist, whilst more recently fans received ‘Chapter 23: Sadako Rising’ which was heavily inspired by Kōji Suzuki’s novel Ringu and the original film adaptation.

Dead By Daylight Chapter 24 Release Date
Confirmed: Dead by Daylight Chapter 24 'Roots of Dread' is coming June 7, 2022.
At the time of writing there is no official release date for Dead By Daylight Chapter 24, however, it’s not too difficult to work out when it should arrive.
When it comes to new content, the game runs almost like clockwork, with each chapter lasting roughly three months. But don’t take out word for it, check out the table below to see how long each chapter has lasted previously.
|Chapter 19: All-Kill||The Trickster||30 March 2021||78 Days|
|Chapter 20: Resident Evil||The Nemesis||15 June 2021||85 Days|
|Chapter 21: Hellraiser||The Cenobite||07 September 2021||85 Days|
|Chapter 22: Portrait of a Murder||The Artist||30 November 2021||99 Days|
|Chapter 23: Sadako Rising||The Onryo||08 March 2022||98 Days|
With this in mind, it seems likely that Chapter 24 should arrive in roughly three months time. Assuming the next chapter begins in 85 days time (the average time between each season), Dead By Daylight Chapter 24 should begin on 31 May 2022.
It’s also worth noting that new content is normally tested on the Dead By Daylight PTR two weeks before being made available on live servers. So technically you can likely expect to play the new chapter at some stage in May later this year.
As soon as we have more intel on the official release date for Chapter 24, we’ll be sure to update this page.
Chapter 24 New Map/Realm
The Garden of Joy is the new disturbing Map players will get to experience – a scenic paradise set in a quaint American town hiding big secrets. The main building for this Map will be a classic family home, a ghostly symbol of domestic horror set against a cold and dreadful backdrop.
Chapter 24 Leaks
May 8 Update: A HUGE DBD Leak has occurred over the weekend, revealing plenty of details about the new Killer (The Dredge), Survivor (Harrie Kaur) and more. Follow the links for the full breakdown of what's been revealed.
For quite some time there’s been talk about a possible Candyman themed chapter for the game, with numerous hints and teasers posted by devs working at Behaviour Interactive. But for whatever reason, the Candyman killer has never come to Dead By Daylight, and if anything, the best time to launch a Candyman chapter would have been last year around the launch of the latest film reboot.
Beyond Candyman, we’ve also seen plenty of leaks prior to the reveal for Chapter 23 – which is based on The Ring and Sadako. Most of the leaks, some of which were fairly legitimate pointed towards a new chapter based on The Conjuring, with The Nun as a potential killer.
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, user Maple_Syrup97 managed to capture one of these leaked images of the supposed new map 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.
That’s everything you need to know about the Dead By Daylight Chapter 24, but we’ll be sure to keep this page updated with new info as it becomes available. However, if you’re looking for more Dead By Daylight guides then follow the links below for more helpful tips, tricks and explainers.
