Much like the mythos surrounding Five Nights at Freddy’s, the release of the fourth entry in the popular jump-scare series has been rife with vague clues and false leads. However, despite all signs pointing to an August 8th release date, Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 has just gone live on Steam, today, July 23rd. Accompanying the release on Steam is a note from developer Scott Cawthon stating: “Ok, so as many of you already know, I’m bad with release dates. The game is finished. 🙂 Enjoy!" Indeed, good sir, indeed.
All three of the previous games in the series have launched on desktop first with mobile versions coming at some point afterwards, and I’d imagine it’s the same with Five Nights at Freddy’s 4. We’ll be keeping a close eye on the App Store though, and we’ll let you know once it shows up. Perhaps the August 8th is referring to a mobile release date? Let the vague clue-based speculation begin!
