A New Friday The 13th Game Is In Development With Composer Harry Manfredini

Iconic composer Harry Manfredini is currently working on a new Friday the 13th game, which has not yet been formally announced. In an interview with Rely on Horror, Manfredini also spoke about the differences between composing for video games and movies.

Manfredini disclosed that the new project he is working on is wholly unrelated to 2017’s Friday the 13th: The Game, an asymmetrical multiplayer horror game. The upcoming game is being developed by a different studio and features a more realistic visual style than its predecessor. Manfredini also indicated that the game’s style would be distinct from Friday the 13th: The Game’s asymmetrical multiplayer gameplay.

While he did not provide any additional information, it is evident that fans of the franchise are eagerly awaiting more specifics on the project’s official announcement. In 2020, Friday the 13th: The Game shuttered its dedicated servers, with its final update coming in 2021, leaving fans curious about the future of the franchise.

A prequel TV series titled Crystal Lake is also in the works and will be produced by A24 and streamed on Peacock. Our editors independently select the products featured on our site, and GameSpot may receive a share of the revenue if you buy anything we endorse.
