Five Nights at Freddy's Spinoff Release Date Announced

Not much longer to wait.


Five Nights at Freddy's World, the spinoff to the popular indie horror series, will be released on February 19. Creator Scott Cawthon announced the release date in a message posted on Steam. Versions of the game for Android and iOS devices will be released in the weeks thereafter.

In addition, a demo for World will be released on GameJolt.

World is "coming along well," Cawthon said, despite some other items that are taking up his time currently. First, he says the computer he used to make Five Nights at Freddy's 1-4, as well as World, recently bit the dust. He had all the files saved, but "it's still quite a delay to get a new machine and reconfigure software."

On top of those computer issues, Cawthon recently welcomed a baby boy into the world. He actually wrote the Steam post from the hospital.

"So obviously, that has kept me a little busy as well!" he said.

World was announced in September 2015, at which time Cawthon stressed that, though some characters from the first four games may appear, it won't be a horror game. Going off the brief snippets of footage seen in the first teaser trailer, World certainly looks wildly different than its predecessors.

A Five Nights at Freddy's movie is also in the works at Warner Bros., with an Oscar-nominated director helming the project.

Five Nights at Freddy's is legitimately terrifying. In the game, players must survive in a scary version of Chuck E. Cheese's that's full of animatronic monsters. Take a look at the video below to see it in action.
