A few weeks ago, Gun Media and Illfonic announced that due to legal troubles with the original creators of Friday the 13th, game development for Friday the 13th: The Game would be put on hiatus. However, now the publisher and developer have revealed that not a single asset can be added to the game no matter which party comes out on top.

The news was made public in a recent forum update by Gun Media founder and president Wes Keltner explaining that there will be no more content can come out despite the outcome.

“Development on games can’t just pause indefinitely and pick back up again; it doesn’t work that way. Especially when you have no idea when that future date will occur. We can’t keep building content that may never see the light of day. That’s bad business.”

Keltner went into detail that everything, including the environment, cannot be updated at all.

“We can’t add any content, whatsoever. Nada. Not even a new tree or rock. We can only focus on console dedicated servers, bug fixes, and maintenance.”

Friday the 13th: The Game released back in May 2017 to mixed reviews. While it was praised for its adaptation of the horror movie franchise in video game form it was heavily criticized for technical issues and lack of longevity. The developers would go on to support the title with constant updates to fix the bugs and add new progression unlocks.

Friday the 13th: The Game is available now for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
