Dead By Daylight Removing Leatherface Survivor Mask After Players Reported Harassment

Behav­iour Inter­ac­tive, the stu­dio behind Dead By Day­light, announced on Jan­u­ary 3rd it intends on remov­ing a cos­met­ic skin for The Can­ni­bal (known as Leather­face). The mask in ques­tion is being removed fol­low­ing reports that some play­ers have been deal­ing with in-game racism because of it.

A two-part devel­op­er update post­ed on Mon­day out­lined a num­ber of changes com­ing to the sur­vival game, as well as address­ing the report­ed harass­ment.  “Mem­bers of the com­mu­ni­ty have shared their expe­ri­ences with peo­ple tar­get­ing and harass­ing them while using some of these masks. These reports were dis­heart­en­ing to hear, and we absolute­ly con­demn this behav­iour,” the stu­dio clar­i­fied in this update.

The result is not too shock­ing, as the Leather­face sur­vivor mask will be removed by the release of the Mid-Chap­ter update. This cos­met­ic would allow play­ers to wear the faces of sur­vivor char­ac­ters in Dead by Day­light, of which Claudette Morel is a part of, who also hap­pens to be a Black woman. Behav­iour Inter­ac­tive did state they, “will not tol­er­ate hate­ful activ­i­ty and will con­tin­ue to take every step nec­es­sary to pro­tect the community.”
