Speaking to EGM, Friday The 13th creator Sean S Cunningham has confirmed that a video game based on the horror franchise is currently in development.
“With a new television series on the horizon and plans announced for the thirteenth installment of the film franchise, we felt the timing was right to finally explore Jason, Camp Crystal Lake, and the rest of the Friday the 13th story in interactive form,” Cunningham explained, in part. “We have some exciting new ideas for a game that supplies plenty of replay value, while delivering the kinds of thrills and scares that fans of the franchise have come to expect.”
The developer of the title has not been announced, however according to Cunningham the “experienced” studio will be announced in a matter of weeks. The game reportedly will be an assymmetrical co-op and competitive multiplayer game where a group of players will have to avoid being caught by Jason Vorhees, who is controlled by another player.
