What began life as a humble horror property has spawned a bankable franchise, and it’s one that creator Scott Cawthon will look to wind down this Halloween with the conclusive Five Nights at Freddy’s 4.
Not much is known about the final installment in the cult series, other than it sports the moniker The Final Chapter as was revealed in the above promotional artwork. Currently occupying spots on the iTunes paid-for charts, all three entries into the horror franchise have carved out a dedicated fanbase across PC and mobile, and it’s a testimony to the game’s deviously simple set-up that Five Nights at Freddy‘s has continued unabated for no less than four fully-fledged features.
As a matter of fact, the legacy of Cawthon’s property won’t be limited to pixels, as it was confirmed earlier this month that Warner Bros. had acquired the rights for a cinematic adaptation of the franchise. With Seth Grahame-Smith on board as producer, the creative team are aiming to hone the quirky nature of Five Nights at Freddy’s by serving up a film that is an “insane, terrifying and weirdly adorable movie.” Just like the video games, then.
We’ll keep you right up-to-date on all of the news pertaining to Five Nights at Freddy’s 4: The Final Chapter as it gears up for its Halloween release. Until then, you can let us know whether or not you’ll be sad to bid farewell to Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza in the comments below.
