Five Nights At Freddy's Two is Actually the PREQUEL?

Fan theories are wonderful source of entertainment, but creator Scott Cawthon may have duped fans into thinking Five Nights at Freddy's 2 is a sequel.

Hold on to your pants ladies and gentlemen as we will be diving deep into fan theories of the critically acclaimed by fans game Five Nights at Freddy's. Note, there are a lot of spoilers in this article. You have been warned.

According to a Reddit threat populating about the game, many fans have been conjuring up speculations of the timeline for FNAF2 compared to FNAF1. One glaring discrepancy is the Phone Guy appearance in the second game. He seems to be doing well and is alive for the most part. However, we clearly know that on the fourth night of the first game he was met with an untimely demise concluding Phone Guy killed by being stuffed into a Freddy Fazbear suit. So when he seems alive and well in the second game, we ponder what is really going on?

On the first day of FNAF 2, Phone Guy briefs you about the history of the store.

Uh, now, I want you to forget anything you may have heard about the old location, you know. Uh, some people still have a somewhat negative impression of the company. Uh... that old restaurant was kind of left to rot for quite a while, but I want to reassure you, Fazbear Entertainment is committed to family fun and above all, safety. They've spent a small fortune on these new animatronics, uh, facial recognition, advanced mobility, they even let them walk around during the day. Isn't that neat?

However, this completely contradicts the first night of FNAF1 where Phone Guy says, "Uh, they used to be allowed to walk around during the day too. But then there was The Bite of '87. Yeah. I-It's amazing that the human body can live without the frontal lobe, you know?"

How can the company allow animatronics to walk around when someone's frontal love was bitten off? How could the company be able to reinstate itself after the mess? On the fifth night, Phone Guy makes a striking clarification.

We're going to try to contact the original restaurant owner. Uh, I think the name of the place was "Fredbears Family Diner" or something like that. It's been closed for years though, I doubt we'll be able to track anybody down. Well, just get through one more night! Uh, hang in there! Goodnight!

In FNAF1, the establishment was called "Freddy Fazbear's Pizza" not "Fredbear's Family Diner" which leads one to believe there are three establishments by the Fazbear company.


  • Fredbear/Fazbear's Family Diner
  • Unnamed Restaurant (FNAF 2)
  • Freddy Fazbear's Pizza (FNAF)

Diving deeper into the game, we know the original game takes place in 1990. The player's check at the end of FNAF1 is $120.00 divided by the six nights(the extra night included) means the player receives $4.00 which was the minimum wage in 1990. The paycheck awards in FNAF 2, gives a date of the first week's completion which is November 12, 1987. This becomes evident that FNAF 2 takes place before FNAF1 and it's reasonable to suspect "The Bite of '87" takes place in FNAF2 as Phone Guy mentions on the last day there is a birthday party the following morning.

What is also important to note,is that according to the creator's website prior to FNAF2 releases, the game was supposed to be released sometime in 2015.(wiki) I am certain FNAF2 is not the official second part of the series and that fans are in for a terrible surprise this spring.
