“All things must come to an end, eventually”
The developer of Friday The 13th: The Game has announced that it will end support for the game after one final patch in November.
In a statement to fans via the game’s official forums, the lead community developer, Matt Shotcha, outlined the details for the final patch and announced no further updates would be coming in the future.
Shotcha also confirmed that the game’s dedicated serves will be decommissioned after the patch goes live later this month. However, he also noted that gamers can still play the game, through peer to peer quick play lobbies or private matches. It’s been confirmed the servers will still retain all player progression and unlocks.
“The team has been hard at work completing fixes for a long list of player issues to include in that final patch, and the community can expect finalized patch notes to be released in the week prior to the patch going live,” Shotcha added.
The forums will remain in a locked state, for users to use as reference only. The game’s social media channels will also be going quiet, operating solely for “any necessary announcements”.
Going forward, Friday The 13th: The Game will continue to be on sale, while the double XP, CP, and Tape Drop Rates that were introduced at the start of the COVID-19 pandemix will continue indefinitely. In addition, the site JasonKillsBugs will carry on operating as a troubleshooting service for the game.
The game’s competitor, Dead By Daylight, will be receiving support going forward, with a huge next-gen patch arriving in the future.
