Five Nights at Freddy’s creator jumps back from series

PLAY FREE BIRD lol rofl lmao

Several years ago, I went through a list of over 1,000 fan-made games inspired by Five Nights at Freddy’s. And that was before the jumpscare ’em up series really took off. Several games (and one troubled spin-off) later, creator Scott Cawthon has confirmed that he was working on a Five Nights 6 of sorts – but confirmed this by announcing its cancellation. The pressure of fan expectations was too high, he says, so he’s stepping back to spend more time with his family and make something else. Sounds sensible. Read the rest of this entry »

Sister Location Is Probably Five Nights At Freddy’s 5

Well, despite creator Scott Cawthon’s suggestion that Five Nights At Freddy’s 4 would be “the final chapter” of the juggernaut of jump scares, it seems things are going on. A new game is being teased on his website. The title, written across a robotic toy face, appears to be Sister Location, and that’s joined by the tagline, “There was never just one.” A spin-off? That’s the implication, certainly, unless this is simply FNAF5.

Spooky Teddy JRPG Spin-Off FNaF World Out Soon

I have never played a Five Nights at Freddy’s [official site] game. This is nothing to do with loathing the art style or having no patience for jump-scares, and everything to do with an ancient prophecy that states the entire population of the world will spontaneously sprout weeping facial sores should a 5’6″, quarter-Jewish man born in Upton Snodsbury, Worcestershire ever play a game about a scary teddy bear. I’m doing this for you, you understand. As such I will never know if the impending series finale/JRPG spin-off Five Nights At Freddy’s World, is a fitting conclusion to these tales on animatronic horror. I can, however, tell you why it’s not out yet, and when it will be.

Five Nights At Freddy’s World Is An RPG, Is Real

Five Nights at Freddy’s [official site] creator Scott Cawthon has confirmed that while there won’t be a fifth game in the main series – “the story is complete” – there will be another FNAF game soon. It’s an RPG:

“The new game that I’m working on will be called FNAF World. It will not be a horror game, but a role playing game where you create a party using the huge selection of characters from the FNaF games, including the classic, withered, toy, phantom, and nightmare versions.”

Cawthon had planned to release a demo in time for Halloween but the game’s “significantly larger” scope means that won’t be possible. There will be a demo, however, as soon as possible.

Honey, It’s Home: Five Nights At Freddy’s 4 Out Now

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a game in possession of a release date, must be in want of a delay. When Mr Ubi or Miss 2K (no known connection to Mis-Teeq) tell us that their next sequel will be coming out on May 12th, we’re inclined to make like Kyle Reese and ask “WHAT YEAR?” Delays are common but when did a game last release before an announced launch date?

By doing precisely that, Five Nights At Freddy’s 4 [official site] may have pulled off the biggest jumpscare of all. Checking Steam releases last night, I saw the bothersome old bear staring back at me. The game was originally supposed to release on August 4th, the one-year anniversary of the original, but here it is…

It’s Coming Home: Five Nights At Freddy’s 4 In August

Over eleven months and three games, Five Nights at Freddy’s [official site] has terrified more children than I could hope to in a lifetime. Imagine their snotty little faces peeking out from beneath blankets at night, bottom lips quivering. The fools. Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 will despoil this final sanctum, bringing animatronic jumpscare horrors into a normal home and a child’s bedroom. Let’s see you sleep now, kiddies. Creator Scott Cawthon may be my new hero.

A new trailer shows off this setting and brings word that the game’s release date has been bumped up from Halloween to August 4th – the one-year anniversary of the first game’s release.
