Earlier this year, the messy Friday the 13th franchise rights issues put a stop to any and all new content for Friday the 13th: The Game, and to be clear right off the bat, absolutely nothing has yet changed on that front. That said, overall maintenance on the game does continue, and we’ve learned today that Black Tower Studios has entered Crystal Lake.
They’ll be replacing Gun Media’s longtime development partner, Illfonic.
“With dedicated servers and some critical bug fixes in place, our development partner IllFonic has completed all contracted work and will be moving on to different projects that will better utilize the full scope of their team,” Gun Media announced today.
Their statement continued…
“Black Tower Studios has taken the lead on all support and development of Friday the 13th: The Game. Black Tower Studios are very familiar with the project, having previously assisted IllFonic in the creation of content for the past year, including work on the Pinehurst and Jarvis House maps. We are confident in the team’s ability to continue supporting Friday the 13th: The Game. We would like to thank IllFonic for their hard work and dedication to Friday the 13th: The Game since the very the beginning of the project in 2014, and we wish them the best in their future projects.”
