Scream as new killer

I watched Scream with my friend last night and it was really good. Scream would be such a cool edition to dbd. But what would be his perks? Who would be the survivor? Cindy? What would their perks be?

    we have two killers with chainsaws , why not . But like they said once before the licensed killers are not gonna be happening all that much , they are focused on the original killers right now . this allows them to make a quarterly update and only they can slow themselves down . a licensed killer they have to submit and get approval for , pay for the license , and then show the final product as intended and get approval again before they can release it . That is outside of the development stages of making sure it balanced and working correctly without bugs . This is why you wont see new killers like that except maybe yearly if that at all . Its a long process they have to dedicate time and manpower to in order to satisfy the rights holder before they can try and satisfy the players with it . Time and manpower that could have been spent making 3 or 4 original killers . Plus they would have to recoup the investment in said killer/survivor in a dlc pack much like the way things are now and they have to get a lot more approval for reskinning them and pay fees there as well if they want to offer cosmetics .

    Though I like the idea of ghostface , I don't think we will be getting licensed killers anytime soon if at all . There are bigger things they have to tackle first .

    It's not just the weapon, the entire character model would be so similar you wouldn't be able to tell the difference from a distance.

    I wouldn't think so , ghostface would be shorter , thinner in build and the open elongated jaw of the mask would be a much different look , plus the flowing black robe design . I can see them being easy to tell apart .

    So?

    Ghostface wears a black cloak whereas Michael Myers wears a dark blue jumpsuit.  Their masks are also completely different looking.

    Just because they might look a little similar from a far is a extremely silly reason to not add him in the future... possibly.

    I would rather see Jason Voorhees before Ghostface though.

    Friday the 13th already has a game license out there , most , not all , are exclusive licenses . as a example , sony had a star wars mmo called star wars galaxies , the license was pulled from them in order for swtor to be released . So if their game has a exclusive license , then they would either have to wait for it to run its course , or offer to buy it out thus costing much much more , making it less likely to happen .

    I dont get why so many want ghostface added as a killer. I mean I've seen people suggest stuff like all suvivors starting the match with cellphones and he can call them on it like in the scream movies. Yeah ok but that seems like it would be really hard (and kinda out of place) to add in the game. Now I've said it before and I will say it again...this guy would fit like a glove;).. http://villains.wikia.com/wiki/Pumpkinhead

    The killer could hide in a locker waiting to strike.

    if this were a wishlist of what we would like to see , I would love to see hellraisers , phantasm , jeepers creepers , pumpkinhead , and chucky . but like I said about the licensed killers before its very highly unlikely seeing any of them anytime soon . but think about hellraisers , a lot of potential in a game like this for them .
