The "Friday the 13th: The Game" is known now as one of the most awaited and nostalgic games due to the rich cinematic history of the aforementioned. New release announcements were made by those responsible for it, though it may not be the most pleasant to hear.

For those who may not be too familiar with the lore, the original film "Friday the 13th" was shown more than two decades before the time of this writing, setting a fad of one of the most recognized slashers ever.

According to recent reports from the Kickstarter site, there is an apparent delay for "Friday the 13th: The Game," most attributed to the probable adding of content to such. A calendar was allegedly given to the fans, which claim that "Friday the 13th: The Game" will have a beta this fall. The Spring of 2017 will show the multiplayer along with Tommy Jarvis and Packanack Lodge with a playable map, ending with the Summer of next year to launch the Single Player together with Offline AI bots.

Gun Media Studio Head & Co-Creator Wes Keltner said that naturally, people will think of the delay to be a negative thing, which is understandable. Fans should rest assured that "Friday the 13th: The Game" will come with stronger positives than negatives, and while there may be more to account for in the future, the company will give quality content. One glimpse given is the new footage showcasing the beta menu splashes for those curious of the progress.

So far, all that can be affirmed for "Friday the 13th: The Game" is that it will arrive within 2017 entirely, despite the aim of the developers to release it within the last quarter of this year. Regardless, Gun Media gave their word that there will be more to come soon enough.
