This is as close to a jump scare as a video game release can probably get.
the fourth, installment of the Five Nights at Freddy's franchise had an Aug. 8 release date scheduled, SURPRISE! It's now on Steam.
IGN has the story.
The game, which is fully titled Five Nights at Freddy's 4: The Final Chapter, was initially slated for a Halloween release. Developer Scott Cawthon teased the spooky Halloween release back in April. The release was then pushed up to August 8 to coincide with the anniversary of the release of the original Five Nights at Freddy's.
Back in March, the third chapter in the Freddy saga made a similar stealthy appearance on the Steam store.
Five Nights at Freddy's fans have more than just the new game to be excited about. Cawthon announced in April a movie adaptation of the horror games will be coming to the big screen. Warner Bros. picked up the rights and the project is currently out to writers.
This is supposedly the final game in the series. But, just like the animatronic horrors that stalk through the corridors of Freddy's, this franchise might come back.
