The team won't be afraid to add new elements to the classic, as long as they are "authentic."

Were you a fan of Friday the 13th: The Game? Did you like the asymmetrical, multiplayer gameplay? Were you enjoying the trips around Camp Crystal Lake before the game's development came to a stop just as it was catching its stride?

If so you may want to keep an eye on what Sumo Nottingham and Gun interactive have coming up next. They'll be taking their asymmetrical multiplayer experience and applying it to another classic horror franchise. This time it's the 1974 classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

The title is apparently a favorite of Creative Director Ronnie Hobbs and the team will be staying very true to the original by putting the focus right where it belongs; the family. Leatherface, The Hitchhiker, The Cook...it doesn't matter. Each has their role within the team...but sometimes you may just want to go lone wolf.

Don't think the team is afraid to add some "new" to the franchise though...provided it fits. They've even got some help to make sure they stay authentic, "Working with Kim Henkel has obviously been incredible. He has placed an extreme amount of trust in our team to deliver an experience that matches the tone and authenticity of the legendary film he helped create all those years ago," said Hobbes.

If you want to stay up to date on development, check out the official site and follow their Twitter account.
