Friday the 13th: The Game developer IllFonic will soon release a new game, Dead Alliance, leading fears to fly among the former game’s community that development would cease. IllFonic’s CEO has now stepped in to reassure players this is not the case.
In a statement posted to Reddit, Chuck Brungardt wrote: “I wanted to address the concerns that IllFonic has abandoned Friday the 13th: The Game for Dead Alliance. This is 100% not true. Most major and independent studios have multiple teams working on multiple projects at the same time. This is critical for the survival of the studio, especially with the ups and downs with the game industry. Dead Alliance was started way before Friday the 13th: The Game.”
