We’re not big fans of delivering this kind of news because we know some folks out there really enjoy this game, but that doesn’t always matter when it comes to licensing agreements for IPs. Today, Gun Interactive announced via Twitter that their IP license for Friday The 13th: The Game will expire on December 31, 2023. At that time, they’ll no longer be able to sell the game – in any format.
The good(ish) news is that fans won’t have to quit playing at that time. They will have until at least December 31, 2024, before the game shuts down. (The ‘at least’ implies they may get to keep going even longer than that.)
If you’re someone who doesn’t own the game and thinks you might be able to wait until after the license expires and pick up the game for free and play for a year or so, you might want to re-think that. The ability to keep playing requires that you already own the game prior to December 31 of this year. You can however get into the game now without spending too much. Gun Interactive has decided to drop the base game price to $5. In addition, each piece of DLC has been reduced in price to $1. If you drop some cash now, you’ll be able to play for the next year and a half – maybe longer.
