Earlier today, Scott Cawthon, the creator of the wildly popular Five Nights at Freddy’s indie horror juggernaut, confirmed he’s working on a fourth and final chapter in the series, titled Five Nights at Freddy’s 4: The Final Chapter.
The news came in the form of an image posted on his website, which features a decidedly hellish patchwork of familiar furry faces. This was a little disappointing, I’ll admit. Cawthon is on his way to becoming the world’s first trillionaire, and when that many zeroes are involved, I expect such headlines to involve an element of theatricality. A handwritten note tied to the leg of an Asian Crested Ibis, perhaps, or maybe a pool filled with blood?
Okay, maybe not. Freaky pictures like this one get the message across, too.
Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 is slated to hit PC this Halloween.
