News Sadly, New Content for ‘Friday the 13th: The Game’ Comes to an End Published 2 years ago on June 11, 2018 By Nick Bond Share Tweet It appears that because of ongoing legal battles over ownership of the Friday the 13th franchise, Gun Media’s game based on horror icon Jason Voorhees has hit a big bump. The game creators posted an official announcement today, which confirmed that they will not be able to deliver new updates to the game. “Friday the 13th: The Game has established a loyal and excited fan base over the last year. As publisher/developer, Gun and IllFonic have made every effort to provide our fans with an authentic and great gaming experience.” “As many in our community may be aware, a legal claim has been made which could affect all future Friday the 13th intellectual property. Although in the past the game has not been subject to any such claim, new content and material going forward will be affected. An initial decision in this case was expected in October 2017, but no decision has yet been issued. The court review of the legal rights is in process, but final resolution may take some time. Until the claim rights can be dismissed or resolved, no new content can be released.” “When we originally learned that the game fell within the crosshairs of this legal dispute, we tried to balance the creation of new content requested by our fans against the maintenance and bug fixing that our community expects and deserves. We attempted to do both within the limits of the legal case.” “We’ve now been forced to accept that the lawsuit makes future content for the game, including alternate play modes, new playable Jasons and Counselors, and new maps, unfeasible now or in the future. Although the listed content types will be affected, we remain committed to launching dedicated servers on our console platforms and providing the continued maintenance and bug fixing important to supporting our fan base.” “So what does this mean exactly? There will be no additional content added to Friday the 13th: The Game. This includes “Uber Jason”, The Grendel Map, Jason Kill Packs, Clothing, Emotes and new Counselors.“ Related Topics: Up Next Second Sight Films Releasing ‘The Changeling’ 4K Limited Edition (UK) Blu-Ray Don't Miss David Gordon Green and Danny McBride Hoping to Make ‘Halloween’ Sequel Advertisement You may like Comments Advertisement Facebook Dark Universe Presents https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oNZEMdODcq4 Advertisement Latest Popular Videos Blu-Ray & DVD7 hours ago Stephen King’s ‘Doctor Sleep’ Getting Limited Edition Director’s Cut on 4K Ultra HD Blu-Ray in the UK News1 day ago [Image] Tate Steinsiek’s ‘Castle Freak’ Remake to World Premiere at Chattanooga Film Festival News1 day ago Original Station Wagon from John Carpenter’s ‘Halloween’ to Appear at Flashback Weekend Chicago Blu-Ray & DVD1 day ago Second Sight Films Unleashing ‘Revenge’ Limited Edition Blu-Ray in the UK This May News3 days ago A Rare 35mm 3D Screening of ‘Friday The 13th: Part 3’ Will Take Place Next Month in Philadelphia News2 weeks ago Non-Spoiler Details from Thursday Nights Test Screening of ‘Halloween Kills’ News4 weeks ago Jamie Lee Curtis Had to Adapt to Some Limitations and Interesting Changes in ‘Halloween Kills’ News2 weeks ago James Jude Courtney Talks ‘Halloween Kills’ Intensity: “We Pumped Up the Volume on This One” News3 weeks ago Blumhouse’s ‘Halloween Kills’ Will Test Screen This Thursday in Los Angeles News4 weeks ago [Video] Anthony Michael Hall Says ‘Halloween Kills’ is “Really Intense” News1 week ago [Trailer] Eric Dean Hordes’ Throwback Horror ‘Trolls World’ Brings Back ‘Troll 2’ Actor George Hardy News2 weeks ago James Jude Courtney Talks ‘Halloween Kills’ Intensity: “We Pumped Up the Volume on This One” News2 weeks ago [Trailer] Chris Rock and Samuel L.
