We got some good news and bad news for horror fans, as Gun Media and IllFonic announced yesterday that the anticipated 2nd attempt at a video game based on the Friday the 13th series has been delayed into 2017. On the bright side, this delay will allow the development team to bring in some fan requested features including a Single Player mode, playable Tommy Jarvis, and Crystal Lake’s Packanack Lodge as a playable map.
“We want everyone to be assured that coming to our decision to delay was no easy matter, but we believe that the positives far outweigh the negatives,” said Wes Kelter, co-founder of Gun Media, in a release. “We’ve been reading day in and day out on our social media feeds that single player and Tommy Jarvis were in such a demand that we couldn’t ignore our fans. After securing funding, we’re here to tell you that it is a reality and we’re making this game even bigger. It sucks that there’s a delay, but the wait won’t be too long and it’s going to offer more for fans in the long-run!”
Friday the 13th secured funding via Kickstarter last year, but fell short of a $1.625 million stretch goal for a Single-Player campaign. The last we heard from the title, was a extremely brutal look at the games vicious kill moves at Comic Con.
