Five Nights at Freddy's 4 jumps the gun and gets an early release

Five Nights at Freddy's 4 was stealth-released on Steam. Are you ready for Freddy?

If you've paid attention to the Five Nights at Freddy's series up until now, then it should be no surprise that developer Scott Cawthon would release the game early. He did release the second and third game before the announced release dates, so is it really so surprising that Five Nights at Freddy's 4 in already out? Naw.

Cawthon initially stated the release would be in October, near Halloween and debatably the best time of the year to release a horror game. He later claimed the release would be August -- but here we are, it's July 23rd and the game really is out on Steam. Thanks, Scott!

Many fans felt the story was finalized with the third game, myself included. I'm curious as to where Scott is going to take the story here in 4, and I'm sure you are too.

You can nab Five Nights at Freddy's 4 on Steam right now for $7.99. Let's hope the early release isn't indicative of the quality!
