'Friday The 13th The Game' Release Delayed Until 2017, But With Single Player Mode, New Features, Other Good News
While tons of fans are expecting "Friday The 13th: The Game" this fall, the game just got delayed to an early 2017. Still, many can't be all that sad with what the developers are cooking up for them.
Despite not exactly reaching the stretch goal of $1,625,000 on Kickstarter, the developers still decided to include the Single Player game mode. The great thing about it is that this extension in the development cycle isn't limited to just that feature. Gun Media and Ill Fonic also stated that most requested features will also be added.
Polygon reported that features like AI-controlled bots, additional characters and elements from the original movies that weren't mentioned in the development plan will be considered in the extended period.
Below's the official statement from the developers' Kickstarter community page.
"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!"
The roadmap for the release periods have also been announced and these releases will stretch through the summer of 2017. Those who have been waiting for the game would only get to play the beta release, which is slated for a later 2016 release. It is to be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC (via Steam)
