Future plans for 5 Nights at Freddy’s embrace console ports and a ‘big-budget recreation’
It has been comparatively quiet on the 5 Nights at Freddy’s entrance currently, however that is to not say plans aren’t in movement. In a wide-ranging weblog publish, creator Scott Cawthon shared standing updates on quite a few 5 Nights tasks together with the film adaptation, the VR recreation, HD re-releases, and a triple-A title.
5 Nights at Freddy’s for digital actuality is “wanting terrific,” in keeping with Cawthon, and the sport is at the moment about 40 p.c full at Metal Wool Studios. “Should you favored repairing Funtime Freddy up-close in Sister Location, simply wait till you attempt to do one thing like that in VR, up shut, private, with these large animatronics which are only one mistake away from leaping at you.”
In the meantime, the long-awaited console ports of the unique 5 Nights video games are solely about 20 p.c full. Cawthon says he is “working carefully” with Clickteam and the plan is to carry these “new, improved, HD ports” over to Nintendo Change, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, iOS, and Android.
There are additionally new brief tales coming from Scholastic — “some related on to the video games, and a few not” — in addition to an augmented-reality recreation “that may hold you up at evening.”
Trying a lot additional out, Cawthon says “a BIG deal [is] within the works to create an unimaginable big-budget recreation.” This “AAA” undertaking is just within the planning phases, and it is unclear which studio is on board. Past that, the 5 Nights creator additionally desires to finally make FNAF: Into Insanity, “a compilation of a number of earlier gameplay concepts in the identical vein as Replace 2” supposed as a free thank-you to followers. This one might not come to fruition provided that Cawthon is “nonetheless recovering from the primary 4 years!”
Lastly, there’s an replace on the 5 Nights at Freddy’s film. It is slow-going.
“I had a script written; Jason [Blum] favored it, and Chris Columbus favored it too, however I tossed it,” wrote Cawthon. “I had a distinct thought for it, one which I favored higher. I take duty for this delay.”
Because it stands, the 5 Nights film will not cowl all of the video games. Every part post-FNAF3 “is not going to exist within the film universe.” Cawthon believes “this was the very best portion of the storyline to actually focus in on.”
“I am sticking to what I’ve at all times mentioned, both the best film will get made or no film will get made. I hate delaying a undertaking that’s already seen so many delays, however I’ve to go together with my instincts on what I feel will likely be thrilling and fascinating, and what I feel the fanbase will actually need to see. If that implies that I’ve to begin over ten extra instances, then that’s what I will do. The great factor is that every try will get higher and higher, in my view. So, regardless of the delays, it is stepping into the best route.”
I respect that hustle.
