Scott Cawthon's site has a new Five Nights at Freddy's image, but don't think it's a new game
Let's just get this out of the way now: Five Nights at Freddy's, as a series, is over. You can go weep if you want, but it's a fact. There won't be a new game in the series, but the story isn't totally over yet.
Developer Scott Cawthon revealed last month that Five Nights at Freddy's 4, the official last game in the series, will be receiving a free update on October 31st that will add new content for an additional challenge; but Scott claims the update will not reveal what's in the chest.
Today Scott's official website updated with a "Thank you!" image showing off the bots throughout the games.
Don't let this get you riled up, considering Scott has repeatedly stated the fourth game was the last. And honestly we got what we wanted.. except whatever is in the chest. The chest is still a mystery, and it seems like it always will be.
Freddy's will live on in the upcoming movie, which is scheduled for a 2017 release. That's a long ways away. But don't let that long wait trick you into thinking the game series will continue through 2017 -- Scott Cawthon is clearly ready to move on and is working on his next (non-Freddy's) game already.
While the "Thank you!" image is certainly very welcome, the time is coming to finally put Five Nights at Freddy's to rest. At least until 2017, and then who knows! Scott may feel adventurous and put out one last hurrah to his beloved animatronic horror series.
