Update:

Scott Cawthon's website posted a new image, teasing another animatronic to join the roster of frights in Five Nights at Freddy's 4: The Final Chapter, with a tagline of "Was it me?" This robot appears to be a nightmare version of Bonnie. We remember the Springtrap Bonnie from the third game, and we know this one is going to be just as horrific.

Original Story:

Scott Cawthon

Scott Cawthon vows that Five Nights at Freddy's 4: The Final Chapter is the last game featuring Freddy Fazbear, but we have a feeling we might be seeing him again.

Scott Cawthon's official website has released a teaser image for the next Five Nights at Freddy's game. Based on previous images on the website and this new teaser, this could be the last time we'll be seeing Freddy Fazbear. The teaser image's Halloween 2015 release date reflects a much longer development time than previous entries of the series have taken, which is perfectly fine with us. Cawthon made every Five Nights at Freddy's game by himself and released the first one on Steam back in Aug. 2014, with the second game launching just three months later. The third game took an extra month of development and launched on March 2. This Halloween launch date of the fourth game gives Cawthon a little under 8 months to develop what could be the final game of the series. We should note that the name, Five Nights at Freddy's 4: The Final Chapter, is likely a reference to Friday the 13th IV: The Final Chapter, which spawned seven more Jason movies after it, despite its forename.

After the release of Five Nights at Freddy's 3 back in March, Cawthon's website had two different images on it (provided below). The first featured Freddy Fazbear's signature top hat laying in the spotlight, suggesting that the franchise was finished. Considering that you could lay the ghosts of the anthropomorphic machines to rest in FNAF 3, this made sense. Recently, the top hat was removed, leaving only the empty spotlight remaining. Now, it looks like Freddy has returned, with one hell of a drastic makeover, to pick up his hat for a final bow.

Five Nights at Freddy's 4: The Final Chapter will launch on Oct. 31. If it's anything like its predecessors, we can expect a PC, iOS and Android launch for the game. Don't forget, Freddy Fazbear is even getting his own horror film done by Warner Bros.
