Friday the 13th: The Game launched this past Friday for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One but it wasn’t without its problems. Now, developer IllFonic has taken to Facebook to explain the known issues and what they are doing to make things right.
One of the major issues revolving around logging into the game are being put on the game database being hit hard by 75k players. It isn’t the first time a database problem has been behind game launch issues with even AAA publishers falling foul of it in the past.
In terms of what the team is doing, they explain
We are working around the clock to get this solved. We are a small team but brought in outside resources to help. It’s our top priority right now and we need to make sure we can get our servers properly scaled and balanced to handle the current demand. Once we can alleviate some stress on the database this should all start working smoothly. We are working hard to properly load balance our servers and identify issues with accounts that are slowing down the database.
Friday the 13th: The Game was successfully Kickstarted after passing its funding goal of $700,000 and hitting $823,704 when the campaign ended.
