The game is discontinuing service and is moving to peer-to-peer gameplay.

I know when this was in beta/early access people were saying this would "kill DBD" as per usual, but somehow this game just flopped compared to DBD.

I honestly dont know how to feel about this.

    I feel like it mainly flopped because of constant attacks by hackers, of the more malicious kind than just cheaters. From hacking into the games services, hijacking the discord server, and constant attacks on all fronts, the game was always in turmoil. Makes me wonder if they were funded by someone they were so ruthless.

    Here's a fitting funeral song for VHS and Friday the 13th: The Game along with every other asym survival game that has died and disappeared within the last 5 years.

    Sad, but when the only way to make proffits off your games is to cater to greedy FOMO tactics (daily rotation store, mission packs rental, battle pass was planned)... in 2023, you're basically digging your own grave. 🤐

    The game had built in voice communication and map pings, and it was very easy for the survivors to ambush the killer. Playing killer was an absolutely miserable experience, and the game devs decided they would rather shut down the game than make the killer experience better.

    It's really unfortunate. I played the game and i liked it and thought it was pretty polished, but unfortunately i just didn't really have fun with it so i didn't play it.

    It's a real shame all that work was for nothing though, game did not even leave early access or come to any consoles.
