Friday the 13th: The Game, which halted new development in the face of legal troubles in 2018, will shut down its dedicated servers when its next patch arrives this month. It will be the final patch for the multiplayer horror game.
Gun Media lead community developer Matt Shotcha posted the announcement to the Friday the 13th: The Game’s forums November 3. “All things must come to an end, eventually”, he wrote, adding that while dedicated servers will be decommissioned soon, the multiplayer game will remain playable in peer-to-peer matchmaking for Quick Play lobbies. Gun Media is also keeping the game’s database servers running, which means all your player progression and unlocks will remain intact.
But there’s no denying that this is an end, of sorts – one that became inevitable after a lawsuit between two of the creators of the original Friday the 13th film halted all new development on the game in 2018. While Gun Media could maintain the game by fixing bugs, it was barred from adding any new content while the lawsuit made its way through the US courts.
