Folks who refuse to play “Five Nights at Freddy’s” won’t be able to know the feeling of getting scared due to stuffed animals. As typical from previous installments, the fourth game in the horror franchise was released on Steam without much fanfare and trumpets.

“Five Nights at Freddy’s 4” appeared all of a sudden. The game, which costs $8, was originally planned to be released on August 8.
In a statement released on Steam, developer Scott Cawthon wrote, “Ok, so as many of you already know, I’m bad with release dates. The game is finished. Enjoy!”
He then addresses an issue with the full-screen mode. “Also, I see there are comments about the full-screen option not working correctly, I’ll have that addressed before the day is over. Few more minutes…”
Last week, it was reported that the fourth game was supposed to be released on August 8 as celebration of the release of the first game, which proved to be a smash hit among those who love getting scared. Before that, it was announced that the release date was on October 31.
A Warner Bros. movie based on the game is currently in development. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will be produced by Vertigo Entertainment’s Roy Lee and Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg from KatzSmith Productions.
“The story really lends itself to being a movie, and it taps into a largely unexplored niche of horror that a lot of people will be able to relate to,” Cawthon said.
