Five Nights at Freddy's 4 Release Date Is Sooner Than Expected
The indie horror game was supposed to launch on Halloween but now it's coming in August.
Five Nights at Freddy's 4: The Final Chapter will launch for PC on August 8, developer Scott Cawthon announced on Monday. This is earlier than expected, as the indie horror game was previously slated to debut on the appropriate-sounding date of October 31--Halloween.
Cawthon made the announcement through various YouTube channels, including Razzbowski.
August 8 is not a random date; it's the one-year anniversary of the release of the original Five Nights at Freddy's. Cawthon plans to "keep the Halloween date special" by releasing a free update for the game with extra content on that date. In addition, a new trailer for The Final Chapter is coming next weekend.
When it's released, Five Nights at Freddy's 4 will be the fourth Five Nights at Freddy's game launched in the span of one year.
Five Nights at Freddy's 3 is the most recent entry in the series and was released in March this year. The original Five Nights at Freddy's was well-received in GameSpot's review, praised for its dark humor, ability to invoke "heart-pounding terror," and story delivery.
