Five Nights at Freddy’s creator Scott Cawthon always seems to juggle many of the series-related projects ever since it got popular. Currently, Cawthon has three projects lined up which could get some official updates to keep fans interested. Here’s what we know so far about Cawthon’s Five Nights at Freddy’s 2017 plans.
Console Five Nights at Freddy’s release
Recently, Cawthon has revealed that he’s negotiating with some game studios to help him develop the console Five Nights at Freddy’s game. According to his latest post, he’s still picking a studio that will let him keep the game’s rights and have some creative freedom in the project. At best, we may not see the console Five Nights at Freddy’s game this 2017 unless he officially announces the start of its development.
Second Five Nights at Freddy’s novel
According to Cawthon’s post on Rookie’s Steam Discussion thread, the next Five Nights at Freddy’s novel will be released this 2017. However, Cawthon didn’t mention any month so we might have to stay attentive if we want to buy the book early. The last novel, Five Nights at Freddy’s: The Silver Eyes, was a New York Times bestseller and detailed some of the game’s lore. Potentially, the next novel may hold some more lore particularly after Sister Location.
Five Nights at Freddy’s movie
Last 2016, the Five Nights at Freddy’s movie was confirmed to happen as Warner Bros and Scott Cawthon made a deal on it. The movie will be directed by Gil Kenan (Poltergeist, Monster House) and written with Tyler Burton-Smith (Quantum Break, Kung Fury). However, official updates about this movie have gone scarce which have made fans worry. Even Scott Cawthon himself is waiting for an update about this project but confirms that there might be one this January.
For now, PC fans of the series may have no game in development for them this 2017. However, the game series is definitely growing and has a good amount of content coming their way. Despite the confirmed projects, the lack of particular release dates means we may have to wait indefinitely throughout the year until the next official update
