In his own words, it will be “a story we’ve never seen before” that takes place in the lore’s larger universe. Above all, he hopes that it will answer some of the looming questions that players might still have after finishing the games. He adds that those story prospects are what make the project so exciting.
There are currently four games in the Five Nights at Freddy’s lineup, and each ha earned a top spot in mobile gaming popularity charts. The games put a new spin on the sometimes tired gaming industry by adding an element of horror movies into the mix that isn’t often seen and is rarely done well. It seems to appeal to both kids looking for a scary thrill and to adults who enjoy something with a little darker twist than matching candies and trivia games.
