We knew that another Five Nights at Freddy’s game was in development as developer Scott Cawthon teased the project on his website. The image he posted noted the game would release in 2020 and sure enough, we finally have a trailer for the game in the apocalyptic year of 2020.
New FNaF Game Shown During the PS5 Showcase
The next game in the Five Nights at Freddy’s series has been revealed as Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach. Visually, the game looks distinctly different from its predecessors with brighter neon lights and cleaner, more polished graphics.
In the description for the teaser trailer a link to the website for Steel Wool Studios can be found, indicating that Steel Wool Studios is helping with the project’s development. This isn’t surprising as Steel Wool Studios worked on the VR game Five Nights at Freddy’s: Help Wanted and its DLC expansion The Curse of Dreadbear.
Speaking of Help Wanted, we see a familiar face emerge from the darkness to scare us in the trailer for Security Breach… Vanny.
Scott Cawthon’s website has also been updated with a photo of Vanny that has the word “Obey” on it. Back in 2019, text could be found in the source code of Scott Cawthon’s website, hinting at the subject matter of his next game. That source code text is still there, unchanged, as of the time of this writing. It reads:
“Stay the course. I will. Focus on my voice. I will. Don’t let anyone lead you astray. I won’t. Have you selected one? I have.”
In 2019, another clue was uncovered on the FNaF World website (which is now empty and blank) in the form of a number… 58. That number makes a bit more sense after seeing the trailer for Security Breach as we see some artwork in it for Freddy in Space 2, a game released by Scott Cawthon on December 3, 2019.
It was a sequel to FNaF 57: Freddy in Space, technically making it FNaF 58. We’re uncertain how Freddy in Space 2 will be incorporated in Security Breach outside of the artwork shown in the trailer, but it’s cool to see everything coming together.
Other things of note in the Security Breach trailer include potential references to Glitchtrap who was also in Help Wanted and The Curse of the Dreadbear, and the name of the game's location, Freddy Fazbear’s Mega Pizza Plex. The full logo for this location was leaked in a 2021 Five Nights at Freddy’s calendar.
We’re also fairly certain MatPat from The Game Theorists will have some spicy new content for this game once it’s released (and perhaps even before). In fact, The Game Theorists posted a Game Theory video a few days ago called, “We Solved Golden Freddy” that’s well worth checking out.
Anyway, we’re going to end it here before we ramble too much more on theories for Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach. We’re really, really excited to play the game, though we aren’t sure when exactly we’ll be able to play it as the trailer didn’t include a release date.
The only thing it confirms is that the game will be playable on PS5 as a console exclusive. It will also be available on PC, and the trailer notes “not available on other consoles until 3 months after the release date” hinting that we may be able to play the game on other consoles in the future.
