Friday the 13th: The Game is officially going offline, folks. Jason's asymmetric escapade closes its cabin doors on December 31st, 2023 - at least for new councillors looking to buy the game on digital storefronts.
Yep, from that date you'll no longer be able to pick up a copy on the Xbox Store. However, the development team has confirmed that the game will stay live for existing owners for at least another year; through December 31st, 2024.
If you never got around to picking up Friday the 13th but are interested in giving it a go before it disappears, you'll soon be able to get it — and its DLC — for a bit cheaper prior to the delisting date. The team says that the game will drop to $4.99 and each DLC pack to $0.99, although those reduced prices have not gone live on Xbox at the time of writing.
Meanwhile, rumours have started circulating about another Friday the 13th game being in the works. During a recent interview, horror composer Harry Manfredini told outlet Rely on Horror that an unannounced game based on the famous franchise is currently in development with a different dev team. No other details, or an official announcement of any sort, have been shared at this time.
It all seems to be happening in the world of Friday the 13th, then, but all we know for sure right now is that Gun Media's current online adaptation will be delisted from Xbox on December 31st, 2023.
