Gun Media Addresses Hacking Concerns With Friday The 13th: The Game


Friday The 13th: The Game has been a great source of escape, entertainment, and reminiscing for the fans of the Friday The 13th films. In a lot of ways, the game is a highly detailed digital archive of film locations and movie experiences for long removed buildings over the past decades. The long term goals of the publisher Gun Media was never fully realized due to the ongoing law suit over the franchise rights, but the game truly did deliver on recreating the film experience of Crystal Lake and Jason Voorhees.

Unfortunately, there has been a high rate of hacking within the game recently and Gun Media just sent us a Press Release addressing the concerns of the hacking incidents.

For Immediate Release

LEXINGTON, KENTUCKY July 10, 2020

We are working with our development partners toward preventing further disruptions. These attempts and the harm to our player base constitute a crime. So, in addition to our other efforts above, we will also be fully cooperating with any resulting law enforcement investigations.
