Friday The 13th publisher Gun Media announced today that they’d be shutting down their matchmaking servers for good in November. After three years of when the game first launched, it hasn’t been doing so well, eventually losing the hype to a bare minimum, even shortly after the game was released.
The Database Servers will remain online, which means peer-to-peer functionality and player progression will continue on.
Dedicated Servers for Friday the 13th: The Game will be decommissioned in the upcoming patch, set to roll out this month, November 2020. What this means is that the game will revert back to peer to peer matchmaking for Quick Play lobbies. The Database Servers, however, will stay active and continue to house all player progression and unlocks, so users can continue to play Friday the 13th: The Game via peer to peer Quick Play and Private Matches…
…The team at Gun wants to thank each and every player and fan that has made Friday the 13th: The Game what it is today. We know this news is hard to hear, despite being inevitable. We appreciate each and every one of you.
Friday the 13th: The Game is a survival horror video game formerly developed by IllFonic, and published by Gun Media. It is based on the film franchise of the same name. You can play as either Jason Vorhees or one of the survivors trying to escape him.
