this has prob been asked a MILLION times but i've been off for a while— why do we have ghostface without sidney??? i've been catching up on the scream movies and i think she'd be a killer survivor
Because the license isn’t for the scream movies, the license was just for the mask owned by funworld
The only got the license for Ghostface's mask so that they could create their own "Ghostface". While I do think that it's cool that they created their own Killer based on the franchise, it does suck that they didn't make anything else based off of the movies.
They got the mask only. In the movies it was whoever wanted revenge or just a psychopath.
Still waiting for the classic robe costume to be added or at least an all-black version of the devil costume.
Instead we have pirate ghost face on the way ugh.
She's in House Of cards now.
Wrong Sidney, it's Sydney here.
Good to know how to spell it correctly. All maps in spanish spell it with an "i" for some reason.
Thanks for correcting it.
Lorewise, maybe she managed to beat the Entity from taking her?
Chilling at the Woodsboro map.
Lorewise , she wasn't even born.
Still waiting for another psycho to try and kill her for some random reason after the events of Scream 4
Dry-cleaned because she didn't tip him at Christmas.
That was suppose to be dry cleaner, but in between autocorrect and the website crashing whenever I try to edit the comment, it still stands.
No one's explained the full story yet.
To make a licensed chapter, BHVR needs to negotiate with the license holders to use their license. The main things that would be important to the holders are how the license is being used, how they'll make money from it, and when the content will be released.
The issue with Scream is that Sidney, the Ghostface killers, and the films, are all owned by the movie creators/publishers. However the Ghostface Mask, is actually a simple halloween mask they used for the movie, its license belongs to the costume company that made it. So there's two seperate license holders that would need to be negotiated with. The issue is negotiating a license costs money and time, and it's very hard to negotiate twoat once because they will have to agree on everything.
That means they could make a Scream chapter with the movie license, but then the killer would not have the very iconic mask. BHVR decided the mask is the most iconic element of the Killer, so they went for that and created their own character and story for it.
The silver lining is that now we have the mask, there's nothing saying they can't now get the Scream license and create a chapter with Sidney, a map, and the classic cloak. Then we'll basically have the full Scream chapter.
Do you have any evidence whatsoever or is this just how you assume it went?
