It's too bad we couldn't turn back time and warn them of this outcome.

-Fans: "Hey, you're going to waste a ton of time doing this engine upgrade that no one cares about instead of adding Uber Jason. Stop what you're doing and finish Uber before doing anything else."
-Asshats off of DBD and the people the devs listen to: "Jason is too op!"
-GUN: "Guys, we need to do the engine upgrade so we can nerf Jason more."

And nothing changes.

Lets sum it up "in a nutshell" what we know or seem to know (or perhaps speculate). NOTE: Certain aspects have been either ignored, or summed up in the following statements...

First off, F13 the game was a love-project with a huge fan base. It got alot of backers and support from evey angle, including the people behind the movies

The game got finished, released, and everyone from the devs to the fans were ecstatic. The Launch though was overwhelming.. Servers couldn't handle the huge amount of players, but it was fixed relatively quick. Then a bunch of other glitches, bugs and what not were introduced that scared away some of the playerbase. The amount of bugs that needed fixing stressed the devs, who then couldn't consentrate on new content but bug fixes.. Apparently the inexperience of the devs (this is not meant as an insult, on the contrary) was one  of the reasons why the game (and patches) was not properly tested for bugs, causing a huge amount of additional bugs and a huge uproar from the playerbase

After this came the casual players/grieffers/counselors who wanted Jason nerfed. The devs got a little scared that this outrage will cause another loss within the playerbase, so the devs tried to cater everyone, including (and foremost) the grieffers. Unfortunately this Jason nerf lost yet again a huge amount of its playerbase. After this the conversation/debate went back and forth, yet even with these setbacks, the devs still continued working on new content, which mostly got released.

As mentioned, we got alot of new content during the first year, and also alot of new bugs. The amount of bugs caused consern in the devs, which in case caused delay with new upcoming content, including uber and grendel. At the same time the devs were trying to get the dedicated servers online (for consoles), because quiting hosts was the single most anoying thing that caused the most of the negative feedback. Unfortunately the ds needed an engine upgrade, so this was the most important thing, that again causes the stall on upcoming content.

Another unfortunate incident was that the engine upgrade (and Jason's grab) was not, shall we say, a success.. Poff! And again alot of players fled the crimescene.. Still the devs continued working on fixes and grendel / uber. Though they were not going to release another "new content" patch without testing it properly. Therefore, it was going to be delayed; they simply could not afford another subpar patch.

Then along came the lawsuit.. The lawsuit included everything in the universe of F13. So the devs (and everyone else) had no idea on how it would turn out, or how long the prossess would take. So naturaly all development was halted, excluding bug fixes and maintenance. So, everyone consurned in the development team were informed that "you may look for another gig, because we cant afford to pay anyone for just waiting around". This is the main reason why the devs informed us that "no new content, ever". They were playing it "safe". The lawsuit could have lasted for years, so it was just a smart business move, cashing in what to be cashed. Take their losses on the undeveloped content, and not pay anything else for material that might never be released.

Now the situation has changed! The vedict came in faster than anyone expected, so the devs are in an interesting situation. Apparently Victor Miller only owns the rights for the original Camp Blood -script, including Pamela, Baby-Jason and Crystal lake. Horror inc. owns the rest. This changes the whole deal. Now the devs have a legitimate right to make make new content, that is not contradictory to Victor´s rights.

The real questions are:

1. What kind of negotiations are held between horror inc and the dev team (if an appeal, then back to "no content ever" because the rights issue is open again), that could potentialy restrict the development of new content?

2. Do the devs see that recruiting a new team to work on the suspended content is worth the investment = Do they get their money back? 

So, final thought, I have never seen this as a situation where the devs have decieved or lied to us. I just see a group of people who love the game and the franchise, who are just calculating the finacial pro's and con's. Yes, there have been alot of mistakes, but I think the devs were just abit overwhelmed and perhaps a little inexperienced. Atleast they have learned alot during this experience, I love the game and I just hope that the pro's outweigh the con's..

The more things don't change, the more they stay the same.

Exactly. I don't understand the speculation about new content. The only thing stopping new content is Gun. The second they discovered an excuse to abandon the game that's exactly what they did and they never looked back. Has @GunMedia_Ben or @wes addressed any of these discussions? No, they don't give a shit. I'm sure they're happy as hell to be rid of this game. They're now hiding behind their new project. And when that game comes out, I hope you all will do what I will and pull a Gun Media: turn your backs and not give a shit.

Yeah it seems they can release content that doesn't have to do with pam or kid jason, they could make up entirely new maps, kills and counselors to keep the game fresh without breaching the lawsuit stuff right?

Until Gun says they plan on making new content, don't expect any new content. They are working on a new game project, so don't expect any new maps, Jasons, counselors or anything else. We will get bug fixes and balance changes. That's better than nothing.
