Gun Interactive will officially lose the Friday the 13th license

Say goodbye to Camp Crystal Lake

Earlier today, Gun Interactive released a statement that its license for Friday the 13th will expire at the end of the year.

While the publisher was already in a losing battle with the IP since 2018, Gun will officially lose the license completely on December 31. Following that date, the game will no longer be available for sale, both psychically and digitally. However, the publisher also states Friday the 13th The Game will at least remain functionable to those who already own it until December 31, 2024. You can read the full statement below.

As a result of the game’s nearing end, Gun Interactive adds that it will reduce the price to $4.99 for the base game and $0.99 for each DLC pack leading up to its final removal. The statement ends with a message of appreciation to all the fans who supported the game, as well as the publisher. So, if you haven’t played Friday the 13th The Game yet, now is the time to do so.

Gun Interactive revs up for a new horror experience

Although Friday the 13th The Game will soon be unavailable for purchase, Gun Interactive is nearing the release of its next asymmetrical horror game: The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. The new game, based on the iconic 1974 slasher flick, differentiates itself from Gun’s previous entry by incorporating three killers instead of one. Gun Interactive CEO Wes Keltner explains his vision to stay as true to the source material as possible by making the entire Sawyer family threats.

Well, when it came to the design of Texas [Chain Saw Massacre] we knew that 3 vs. 4 was different. All the mechanics and features are built around this fundamental rethinking of asymmetrical multiplayer. Additionally when you look at the ’74 film, you’ll note there’s an entire family to deal with, not just Leatherface. So it felt natural to have three killers chasing victims.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is developed by Sumo Digital and published by Gun Interactive. The game launches on August 18 for PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One and PC. You can also learn more about the new game here.
