Ever since the release of Orcs Must Die! 3 back in July 2021 on Steam, fans have been patiently waiting for news about a fifth installment. There have been no official announcements about a release date, but that hasn’t stopped fans from speculating. Some believe that the game will be released sometime in 2020, while others think it might not come out until 2021 or even later. Only time will tell for sure, but one thing is certain: Orcs Must Die! 4 is one of the most highly anticipated releases in recent years.
Based on the previous game’s release patterns, we can guess that it’ll take somewhere around 3 years for a new Orcs Must Die 4! to be released. That is because, two weeks after the release of the first installment in the series, on July 30, 2012, just two weeks after the first game, the sequel, Orcs Must Die! 2 was released.
Up to now, the release pattern has been nearly four years long with a break in-between. After a brief hiatus, Orcs Must Die! Unchained was released in 2017 and Orcs Must Die! 3 is predicted to be out in 2021 — both have been fantastic additions to the series. This suggests that Orcs Must Die! 4 may arrive in 2025.
At the end of the day however, it doesn’t really matter whether development is still going on or not; it would seem that Orcs Must Die! 4 is still coming, and that’s all that we need to know. It’s hard to predict what the future holds for this beloved indie game favorite, but in any case, if a fifth game is going to come out, it will likely be sometime around 2025 depending on how long the development process takes.
