Friday the 13th: The Game has become something of a big hitter of late, pulling in a strong community of players and kicking off a load of new video game memes in the process. However, the development process for the title has not always been the easiest one, and the game’s long-awaited single player mode is now set for yet another delay.
The news comes courtesy of Gun Media, with the official Friday the 13th: The Game support account on Twitter answering a question about exactly when the single player mode for the game is going to arrive. Unfortunately, it’s not sounding too good right now, with the account simply confirming that the single player mode is still a “work in progress” and with no official release date planned.
This is bound to be disappointing for players of the game, as Gun Media and Illfonic had previously suggested that the single player mode would be ready to go at some point in the summer. With September fast approaching, it looks like the single player mode is going to miss this release window, and instead be pushed back until later in the year.
Single player is a work in progress. No official release date yet. We want to be satisfied before we unleash it! Please stay tuned!

That said, this has not been officially confirmed, and there is still the possibility that Gun Media and Illfonic will be able to pull something out of the bag and get the single player mode out before the summer ends. However, given that the single player mode is not included in the next round of extra content, such as a new playable Jason Voorhees, new counsellors, and a new map, it seems unlikely that another significant update would arrive so quickly.
Thankfully, players of the game do have plenty to keep them occupied, even beyond the core gameplay of either hunting the counsellors or trying to survive the onslaught of Jason. The game is full of interesting Easter eggs, with one such example being the Pamela audio tapes. These tapes from the deranged mother of Jason are much sought-after by players, and recently the Friday the 13th developers confirmed there is a trick to finding the Pamela tapes.
Nonetheless, the addition of the single player mode is something that the community has been calling for, and there’s only so far Easter eggs will go to curing that itch. Hopefully, Gun Media and Illfonic will be able to give a more substantial update on the single player mode of the game soon.
Friday the 13th: The Game is out now for PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
