Poor Victoria is stuck with those ugly patterns forever too. ?

I doubt it's the end of the slasher video game genre. DBD is doing pretty damn well. However, it's really sad that it's come to this.

No. If Friday the 13th did anything it's revealing the potential for these types of games have. The market is there and the market is hungry.

I seriously could care less about new content, fix what we have so it works! I don't want to die because I'm teleported back to the car, or because I escaped in it. Or because I'm action locked on something, or the many other issues they could fix. Take care of that type of stuff and I'll be back, and probably more besides me. It's truly bad when a game is worse off after a year, then at launch. And, those of us who were there back then know how fucked up the game was. This lack of new content might be a good thing. IF... They work to make it better!

@AldermachXI, et al

It get that it's frustrating that it wasn't announced here first, but please envision this:

BLOODY DISGUSTING WRITER: "We've just received exclusive word that the ongoing rights lawsuit now reaches your game's ability to add content. We're about to go to press to break the news. Would you like to provide a statement before this goes live?"

I have NO inside knowledge, but it's not unreasonable to think that Bloody Disgusting scooped this and was going to get it to press with or without a Gun statement.

No more new content? Why...

Also why are they canceling all future content instead of just stating that any future content is on hold, until the situation is figured out? Their choice of words makes it sound like they are just done. Supposedly going to work on servers and fixes (we’ll see if that comes about)... but why word it like you are done with providing anything new? The wording is definitely worrying

Because without the ability to provide new content, the game is pretty much dead.  It's nor profitable for them to continue.

I just found this article on bloody-disgusting saying that Friday the 13th game will be getting no more content update which means we will not be getting  Jason X   and the online community on Steam is basically dead so I guess this means the end of the game

Despite the unfortunate news, I'm glad you brought it to the attention of the people.

My wife and youngest daughter are not gonna be happy about this. I just went to the store and stocked up on junk food too.

I myself hope that they don't quit the Slasher horror genre because for some reason they're the only ones they had the good sense to make a horror game and take it out of the first person view and actually give you real objectives to complete... outside of Resident Evil this is probably my favorite horror game that has ever come out.. I believe they should do like dead by daylight just make the game summer camp as they originally planned and just occasionally get DLC of of the more well-known slashers..

Looks like I've got some free time to get back to the Resident Evil franchise.

All in all, this is sad news. I was planning another F13 themed party, but that's on hold until we get a ruling about this situation. Maybe I'll plan a Halloween themed party in honor of the new movie coming out instead.

Smart money is that they are saying they're still fixing bugs just to buy time for the eventual, "we're sad to say it's over" post in the next few weeks. Servers will stay on for just a bit longer and then the game will be dead.

I'm definitely a pessimist though. I could surely be wrong.

For those looking for the original court filing of HORROR INC, MANNY COMPANY v VICTOR MILLER from 2016, its right here in it's 17 page entirety: https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/3034739-friday13.html

 

https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/friday-13th-rights-at-stake-922911

It *might*. It's just rumors right now, but they pulled down the official website for maintenance right before E3

It's nice to see that Sean Cunningham has some pretty strong arguments in his favor here.  I would love to see the original court filing that Victor Miller made that started the lawsuit to contrast the arguments.  Has anyone seen Miller's filing anywhere?

They aren't going to bother. We will be lucky if the game gets one more patch to fix the match ending early bug.

As a big fan and backer of this game this really pisses me off. Seems like they could have released all of the DLC content before upgrading the engine and we could have got Uber Jason, Grendel, all of the kill packs etc. They could have upgraded the engine after this and still implemented dedicated servers. They fucked up bad. Sorry to say that F13 failed to live up to the hype, I regret backing this game.

Thanks Gun

It really sucks that all of this was suddenly erased by one old, wrinkly bastard. What a damn shame! The game was fun while it lasted.

Fair enough.

I just think most of us would rather have the bugs fixed over piling more content onto a broken game.

You're right though. Some people absolutely appreciate quantity over quality. You're a big part of the reason why the game is in the state it's in right now.

No one should be fine with this.

Without the ability to generate any income, how long do you think Gun and Illfonic is going to want to fix bugs/glitches/dedicated servers at a loss?  

Even worse, since everything is online based minus playing against bots...how long do you think Gun and Illfonic are gonna keep the servers up and going without any revenue?

i would not be surprised if everything is shut down by the end of summer, except for the ability to go kill bots.

@AldermachXI You've brought good ideas to the table. You've been very helpful around here in the past. But this negativity you've displayed lately is really starting to rub people the wrong way.
