Scott Cawthon planned to release Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 for Steam on October 31st and intended it to be the final game in the series. But in an odd twist, not only did Cawthon pre-pone the launch to August 8th, he subsequently announced in a Steam Community post that it was out now. Like, right now. You can purchase it on Steam for $8.
Cawthon’s reasoning for the sudden release? “Ok, so as many of you already know, I’m bad with release dates. The game is finished.” Fair enough. Interestingly, Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 will be now receiving an expansion on Halloween. Surely this will finally end the game for real, right guys?
Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 is the first game in the series not to be set at the restaurant of the same name. Instead, you’ll play a child who is haunted by the mechanical animals in his very home with nothing but a flashlight by his side. The rule is the same as before though – survive until 6 AM by any means necessary.
