A new Five Nights at Freddy’s game has leaked called Into The Pit. It’s seemingly in development at Wrestlequest developer Mega Cat Studios and appears to be a side-scroller with pixel art – a bit of a deviation from the usual style of the games. Not much else is actually known about the game at this point, including when it will release or which platforms it’s being developed for, though an official announcement is imminent.
Five Nights at Freddy’s: Into The Pit seems to focus on a young protagonist who sneaks into a rundown pizzeria one night, only to find the hallways being stalked by William Afton aka Springtrap. Many fans pointed out that it could be based on the anthology book of the same name, which features a story with similar plot elements. The leak was picked up by Redditor IAmAnthlon, who provided further details about the game including a Streamable link to watch the trailer (which might be taken down any day now).
Five Nights at Freddy’s creator Scott Cawthon confirmed the game’s existence himself over on the FNAF subreddit, saying that it’s meant to release as part of the franchise’s 10th anniversary celebrations this year. It was also in development for a “really long time.”
Fans speculate that the announcement could happen as part of an upcoming unannounced PlayStation State of Play event. Historically, recent Five Nights at Freddy’s games such as Security Breach and Help Wanted 2 were both revealed at State of Play shows, so it’s possible that Into The Pit might be revealed in the same fashion.
In related news, the live-action Five Nights at Freddy’s movie starring Josh Hutcherson and Matthew Lillard managed to pass $200 million at the worldwide box office, ensuring that a sequel will inevitably be made. The movie’s reception was mixed, with many critics slamming the movie’s lack of genuine scares and poor pacing. However, die-hard fans seem to appreciate it a lot more.
