I'm not necessarily saying they will, but it is a testament to Jason's legacy & how well known the character is. Word of mouth wasn't great, but I remember everyone I know being satisfied with it after seeing it in theaters, & being on different boards at the time, it was pretty mixed. Some loved it, some hated it, & there were some who were in between.
Simply put, they'll have to go the extra distance if they want the next one to be a bigger success. The reboot is great because it perfectly combines elements of the originals while being a modern take, but the next film needs to push boundaries, do something new with the characters.
Can't make it off the exact same "stalk 'n slash" plot, especially when it's been done a billion times over the last three decades.
