Gun Media has confirmed that camp counselor-slaughter simulator Friday the 13th: The Game will not be receiving anymore fresh content.

Writing in a post on the game's official forum, co-creator Wes Keltner revealed that ongoing legal disputes over the Friday the 13th franchise, which involves the script writer for the original film, has essentially put the kibosh on any future content plans.

'Development on games can’t just pause indefinitely and pick back up again; it doesn’t work that way. We can’t keep building content that may never see the light of day. We can't [add non-Friday the 13th related content] either. We can’t add any content, whatsoever. Nada,' he said.

Friday the 13th had a pretty major roadmap ahead of it prior to the legal dispute, including Uber Jason, extra camp counselors, and more. 

Despite this, Gun Media will continue to support the game by rolling out bug fixes and doing maintenance support, though future DLC now seems to be a pipe dream.

Friday the 13th was released on PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One as a digital download in May 2017.
