- This will be the first Saw film not to be released in October.
- The "spirals" in the film allude to the red spiral markings on Billy the Puppet, which was often used by Jigsaw to interact with the victims trapped in his deadly games. Ironically, this will be the first Saw film not to have Billy The Puppet as a character.
- This is the first film not to have Tobin Bell reprise his role as John Kramer, and the second time since Saw: Rebirth where he doesn't return as the character overall.
