Friday the 13th Publisher Rumored to Be Working on Texas Chainsaw Massacre Game
Friday 13th: The Game is the most popular video game adaptation of horror movies. Although the multiplayer asymmetric horror game may not have lit the world on fire, it is still a loving tribute to Friday the 13th franchise. It features several memorable characters and locations, as well as plenty of Jason Voorhees skins. An online rumor suggests that another classic slasher movie franchise will be getting the Friday 13th treatment. However, fans should expect less.
According to rumors, Friday, the 13th: The GameGun Media publisher could be involved in the Texas Chainsaw MassacreVideo game. This rumor started when it was discovered that visiting leatherfacethegame.com redirects users to the Gun Media website. However, it must be stressed that it’s entirely possible that someone completely unrelated to Gun Media purchased the leatherfacethegame.com domain and is having it redirect to Gun Media as a way to troll fans. Needless to add, Texas Chainsaw MassacreFans should be careful not to get too excited about the potential Leatherface game.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game may be fake. However, it wouldn’t surprise anyone if it was real. Gun Media had some success with Friday 13th: The Game, so it would be logical to try a similar project with another horror franchise. A new Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie will be available on Netflix soon so that that cross-promotion would be possible.
Kane Hodder’s comments on the “leaked” Leatherface Texas Chainsaw Massacre video are another factor that favors it. Hodder is most well-known for his role as Jason Voorhees in various Friday 13th films. Last year, Kane Hodder confirmed that he was doing motion capture work on a horror game based upon a different horror franchise. Hodder did not confirm the horror franchise he was motion-capturing, but this Texas Chainsaw Massacre game might be true.
Last but not least, this Texas Chainsaw Massacre legend is somewhat plausible because the rightsholders of the franchise have already indicated a willingness for Leatherface to be included in video games. Leatherface is a playable character featured in Mortal Kombat X’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre 80s videogame. Recently, Leatherface was featured at the Call of Duty: Warzone Halloween Event. The character was also available as skins that could be purchased for Modern Warfare and Warzone.
It remains to be confirmed if the Leatherface Texas Chainsaw Massacre videogame is real. However, fans should keep watching to see what horror game Kane Hodder has been developing and Gun Media’s next steps are…
