Regardless of the outcome of the legal battle, we probably will not see any new game content.

Despite the on-going legal issues preventing new content from being released in Friday the 13th: The Game, the team behind the asymmetric slasher are instead doubling down on the continued support of their product. In a post on Wednesday, Gun Media community lead Daniel Nixon detailed a shortlist of serious game-breaking bugs and glitches that the development team is prioritizing for a quick fix. Some of these bugs have been present since the mega-update last month, while others have arisen from the last small patch released just a few weeks ago.


In addition to the list of critical fixes listed above, fans also learned that dedicated servers for consoles are still coming as they were previously promised, and that going forward with the lack of new content, IllFonic will instead be able to focus on cleaning up the game through fixes and optimization of the Unreal Engine upgrade. That is the good news.

The bad news is that even if the judge rules on the Victor Miller case sooner rather than later, it is unlikely we will be seeing any new Friday the 13th: The Game content at all. Gun Media's Wes Keltner took to the game's official forums and explained the situation.


While we are happy to see some of the game's major issues being prioritized, the future of Friday the 13th: The Game does not look good with respect to seeing the game expanded on any further. We'd like to hear your thoughts on the subject, so feel free to leave a comment or connect with us on social media.
