A new Five Nights at Freddy’s game has been teased by creator Scott Cawthon via an image on his website. According to the image, the game will be out this year on Halloween and is titled Five Nights at Freddy’s 4: The Final Chapter, which insinuates that it will be the final game in the series.
The image features a creepy new take on Freddy Fazbear, the animatronic character featured in the previous games, holding a top hat. The text can be a bit hard to make out without bumping up the contrast, as I’ve done above. No additional details were revealed about the game.
Five Nights at Freddy’s 3 is the most recent entry in the series and was released in March this year. The original Five Nights at Freddy’s was well-received in GameSpot’s review, praised for its dark humour, ability to invoke “heart-pounding terror,” and story delivery. A film adaptation of the game is also in the works with Roy Lee (The Departed, The LEGO Movie) and Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Productions (the upcoming Beetlejuice sequel) signed on as producers.
The Five Nights at Freddy’s Games are available to purchase on Steam and the iTunes Apple Store.
