Contrary to popular belief, developer Scott Cawthon pulled the wool over everyone’s eyes Thursday when the long awaited Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 became available on Steam.
“Ok, so as many of you already know, I’m bad with release dates. The game is finished,” Cawthon said in a Steam Community group post
The survival/horror game was initially scheduled for a Halloween release, but was then pushed forward to August 8 several weeks ago upon the launch of the game’s trailer.
The restaurant based franchise has now taken a new form with not only moving the game location inside a house, but with “nightmare” incarnations of the beloved spine-tingling animatronics.
The game can be purchased here for $7.99.
An expansion is planned for a Halloween release, but it’s a safe bet that we’ll be getting that early as well.
After all, Cawthon is “bad with release dates.”
