Addressing the improvements to matchmaking, Gun Media stated that they wanted to reiterate “very strongly” that, “matchmaking fixes are always an on-going process. Testing showed around a 4x-6x improvement in matchmaking speed; though we'll continue to monitor in the live environment.” This means that players should be able to find a match significantly faster than what they were previously.

The Patch Notes for Update 1.04 were included in the post as well:

Now that Update 1.04 for Friday the 13th: The Game is live, players should be able to dive back into the role of a Counselor or Jason with relative ease. Hopefully now it’s not as difficult to find a game as it is to kill Jason.
