Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach has been making sporadic appearances since its announcement last year for PlayStation consoles and PC. Its gameplay was revealed at Sony’s February State of Play with a 2021 release window attached. Series creator Scott Cawthon has now confirmed that it will be out in late 2021 for PC, PS4 and PS5.
In a recent Reddit post, Cawthon said that the title was originally slated to release by 2020 end. “But as we kept working on it and kept adding to it, it just kept getting bigger and bigger and needed more time to finish. And now, again, I’ve made the decision to put more time and money into it to make sure it’s finished properly, and that means a late 2021 release instead of an early 2021 release like I had originally wanted. It will be worth it!”
Cawthon also announced that Security Breach: Fury’s Rage is now available for PC players as apology for the delay. A side-scrolling beat ’em up, it’s free on Game Jolt.
As for Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach, it’s certainly a larger scale affair than previous titles. Set in Freddy Fazbear’s Mega Pizza Plex, which is three stories tall, players will have more freedom of movement than before as they evade the killer animatronics. Unlike previous titles which Cawthon developed alone, Steel Wool Studios of Five Nights at Freddy’s VR: Help Wanted fame are also involved. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
