Put down that machete, don’t impale that Counselor, and that couple making out you want to kill? Let them enjoy the moment just a little bit longer, as we have plenty of Friday the 13th: The Game news for you!!!
Gun Media and IllFonic have gone all out, revealing their content roadmap for the foreseeable future! Behold Friday the 13th: The Game fans, the roadmap for upcoming content!!!
Oh my goodness, oh my dayum, Jason is already going ham over all the death and buckets of blood he’s about to bring.
For those of you who have been waiting for the promised single player campaign, Gertz from developers IllFonic broke their silence over the lack of updates and explains the current situation.
Let’s talk about single player. Currently we are behind on the Summer date. There are number of reasons why this is, but it all boils down to making sure we are not releasing new content while still having issues with the core game. There were a number of issues we needed to address with the games stability prior to committing additional resources to making Single Player happen. We now feel we have turned that corner and have doubled down on Single Player to try and catch up.
We have hired additional people, are working with contractors and even diverted others working on other tasks to help. We have also decided to take a look at Single Player and we are breaking it into a number of different experiences that can be released independent of one another. This way as soon as one thing is done we can launch it without having to wait on everything else.
I also want to address the misconception that certain content we launch affects single player. It doesn’t. An artist working on outfits is not the same person that is programming AI. The designer setting up scripted events for single player is not making the new Jason models. What does impact Single Player are the bugs and stability issues; that AI programmer may have to shift to fixing a bug occasionally. The designer may have to shift to fix balance or gameplay bugs on maps. This is why we are delayed. We made the decision to fix rather than add new stuff which again, is what caused the delay.
There you have it! The future for Friday the 13th: The Game is a bright shade of red!
