Friday the 13th Development Has Ceased

 Sadly, publisher Gun Media has now confirmed that potential will never be realized, as new content development has been permanently ended.

 

"I wanted to address a few questions that I’ve had sent to me personally, as well as questions we’ve received through the official F13 channels. These questions vary but all have a similar tone/request. 'Is there a chance of any content being added to the game if a ruling on the dispute occurs in the near future?'," Gun Media founder and president Wes Keltner wrote on the Friday the 13th forums. "The answer is no."

 

"Development on games can’t just pause indefinitely and pick back up again; it doesn’t work that way. Especially when you have no idea when that future date will occur. We can’t keep building content that may never see the light of day. That’s bad business."

 

The problem arose from a legal dispute between the creators of the original film, and the ensuing question of who actually owns it. I expressed hope at the time that a resolution of the lawsuits might see development resumed, despite how long the legal battle has already dragged on, but it was a faint hope at best, and this outcome really isn't surprising.

 

Keltner added that it's also not possible to add new content, like original locations or counselors, even if it's unrelated to Friday the 13th. "We can’t add any content, whatsoever. Nada. Not even a new tree or rock," he wrote. "We can only focus on console dedicated servers, bug fixes, and maintenance."

 

"I know this isn’t the news you wanted to hear and I wish the situation were different. But it’s the painful truth."

As someone who helped kickstart it and then hoping they worked out the kinks this is kinda lame. :/

They run the servers, so at some point in the not-to-distant future, they'll shut them off. 

 

I'm not one to advocate murder, but that screenwriter needs to disappear. I find it very ironic that someone who wrote F13 is claiming artistic integrity.

Man at the end of the day it all comes down to money. They just try to disguise it with something else. Hopefully the developers can make a spiritual successor. It's a game I always wanted to try but hoped they would of tighten it up a bit.
