Friday the 13th: The Game is Set to Be Delisted At the End of This Year

Publisher Gun Media has announced that Friday the 13th: The Game is due to be delisted for purchase after 31st December 2023, due to the game's licensing expiring on that date. An asymmetrical horror game release in 2017, Friday the 13th has one player assuming the role of hockey-masked killer Jason Voorhees, as rival players play as Crystal Lake camp counsellors, attempting to survive.

With dedicated servers removed back in 2020, it seemed like only a matter of time before Friday the 13th: The Game started to wind down, especially with developer IllFonic turning its hand to Ghostbuster: Spirits Unleashed, and Gun Media bringing another iconic horror IP to market with The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, this August.

However, Friday the 13th: The Game will remain playable until “at least” 31st December 2024, the game's official Twitter confirmed, and the game's price is set to be reduced to $4.99 until its removed from sale at the end of the year. DLC packs will also be offered for $0.99 apiece, so you can pick up every bit of content at a snip.

“We would like to thank our community for the dedication they've shown to Friday the 13th: The Game and Gun Interactive as a whole, and we are happy the game will live on a while longer and continue to be enjoyed by anyone owning the game already,” a statement from Gun Media and IllFonic reads.

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

  • That'S how you handle a delisting. Ample notice and a nice rebate for people who still want the game. But mostly the half-year notice.
  • Probably the game I have spent the most hours playing. Such a great game
  • Still have it as a Plus game, still surprises me how terrible those graphics are.
