'Five Nights At Freddy’s 4' Update Slated For Holloween Teases Scott Cawthon's Next Game? 'FNAF 3' Sequel The Last Of The Franchise?

By Alex Cruz

"Five Nights at Freddy's 4" is slated to get a Halloween update, and it will reportedly give fans a glimpse on Scott Cawthon's next game project. Hearing that the game creator of one of the most successful franchises is working on something is good, but because of that, rumors have surfaced that this game could be the last "FNAF" installment.

If Cawthon could finish it on time, he was hoping to add a demo of the new game his currently working on. Nonetheless, he would still include a preview of that game.

"I have something fun in mind, a new game (not "FNaF5"), but it will be a real challenge to have even a small playable portion by Oct 31st," Cawthon said, in a statement he released on Steam.

"If a playable demo isn't ready by then, then at the very least there will be some sneak-peek content," he added.

The content for "Five Nights at Freddy's 4" is not a DLC, rather an automatic update, Gamespresso learned. Cawthon calls it a 1.1 update, and will include cheat menu, a challenge menu and what he called a "twist on a familiar minigame" providing a boost when playing challenge modes.

What made the game creator's announcement controversial was during the part where he talked about the box. What's inside the box, according to Cawthon, are pieces being put together.

"The fact that the pieces have remained elusive this time strikes me as incredible, and special, a fitting conclusion in some ways, and because of that, I've decided that maybe some things are best left forgotten, forever," he stated.

Combine this statement with the earlier one, stating his developing a new game — not "FNaF 5" — resulted in fans' speculation that it's the end of the "FNaF" series.

Meanwhile, the "Five Nights At Freddy's" film adaptation is still ongoing, but there are no recent updates on the cast or the new movie's release date, according to Venture Capital Post. What is definite though is Cawthon's involvement in the entire movie-making process.

"I want [Scott] involved in a real way," director Gil Kenan said.
