Love it or hate it, you can't deny the runaway success of the Five Nights at Freddy's series, with creator Scott Cawthorn churning out (mostly) brilliant titles, and perhaps a few misfires, in a very short space of time. There's some good news for fans of the series though, as Scott teased a new, AAA budget game, as well as confirming news about the upcoming FNAF movie, and VR releases.
Speaking of the movie, there's been some delays on that front, as Scott has decided that, despite completing a screenplay and it being approved by movie studio bosses, that he didn't like it anymore, and has scrapped the entire thing to start again...
I’m sticking to what I’ve always said, either the right movie gets made or no movie gets made. I hate delaying a project that’s already seen so many delays, but I have to go with my instincts on what I think will be exciting and interesting, and what I think the fanbase will really want to see.
...but at least FNAF VR, a new virtual reality edition of the game, is now "40%" complete, and frankly, I'm far too terrified of the prospect of trying it. Still, the videos of Markiplier playing that one will be something of a treat.
Another game in the works is Five Nights at Freddy's: Into Madness, a compilation of several previous gameplay elements, which sounds somewhat similar to Ultimate Night in concept, honestly.
The real interesting news though is the tease of a new, AAA FNAF game that is in the works, although not yet 100% confirmed.
There is a BIG deal in the works to create an incredible big-budget game! I can’t reveal any details yet as this project is still in its planning stages, but I’m working closely with the studio involved to ensure that it delivers what (I think) FNAF fans will want to see!
So while not yet 100% confirmed, it'll be amazing to see a huge, full length AAA FNAF title, but just what form that will take remains to be seen.
Stay tuned to GameFront for more FNAF news as it happens.
