Five Nights at Freddy?s fans on Steam are defending the series creator Scott Cawthon from other fans who claim to have found Cawthon?s house address. If this is true, fans may have already asked Cawthon about the progress of upcoming projects like the Five Nights at Freddy?s movie. Despite the fans? interest in the movie?s release, this move could be considered a violation to Cawthon?s privacy.
As seen on Magicraftcat?s thread on the Five Nights at Freddy?s Steam discussion, fans are willing to help protect Cawthon from players who know his private details. People holding these sensitive info may not intend on just visiting Cawthon for an interview about his projects like the Five Nights at Freddy?s movie. This also means that Cawthon could be in potential danger as his private details are available on the internet.
In another Steam Discussion thread, Cawthon defused the situation as he confirmed that the stalkers may have gotten the wrong details. He also urged his fans to do something more productive than snooping around for his personal details as there is little to do with such info anyway.
Lately, Five Nights at Freddy?s movie director Gil Kenan hasn?t provided any new info or hints about the movie on his Twitter account. However, Cawthon has confirmed that the movie production is still ongoing, though he did not disclose any release dates or the progress of the upcoming movie. Due to the lack of info, fans expecting the Five Nights at Freddy?s movie are concerned if it will be released at all.
For now, players have to wait for a significant update until the Five Nights at Freddy?s Sister Location game releases in October. Game development currently eats up a lot of Cawthon?s time, and he might be free to focus on the movie once the game gets released. Alternatively, Cawthon also has the next Five Nights at Freddy?s novel on his work slate, so he may focus on that instead of the movie.
