Five Nights At Freddy’s 4 Release Date Announced With New Trailer

UPDATE: A Five Night’s at Freddy’s 4 Steam Store Page has been created and it appears to confirm the recently announced release date of August 8th as the Steam page simply reads, “Available: August 2015.” The page also includes a link to popular FNAF Youtube Let’s Play stars Dawko and Razzbowski. The pair can be seen streaming their first impressions of the upcoming survival-horror sequel.


On July 13th, Five Nights at Freddy’s creator Scott Cawthon posted a new trailer for Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 on his youtube page.
In an interesting twist to the series it seems that now the terrifying animatronics are haunting someone’s home, and not Freddy Fazzbear’s Pizza.
While Cawthon’s website previously had a placeholder release date of of 10/31/15 for the fourth installment in the massively popular survival-horror franchise, he recently revealed on his Twitter page that the release has been moved up to August 8th to coincide with the upcoming anniversary of the first game’s release. Cawthon also promised that additional content will be released for FNAF 4 on 10/31/15.
When the game launches on PC and mobile devices on August 8th, it is sure to be a terrifying experience for players and an entertaining experience for those who enjoy watching Freddy scare the daylights out of Twitch streamers and Let’s Play personalities.
In a previous interview with Cawthon, we discussed his history as a Christian independent developer and some of the titles he worked on before the breakout success of Five Night’s at Freddy’s.
What do you think about the upcoming release of the final installment in the Five Night’s at Freddy’s series? Let us know in the comments below.

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ. My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up. I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.

    I have updated this article with new information and a link to a Steam Store Page for FNAF 4 which also seems to indicate that the game will be releasing in August. I am still not sure if the Twitter page I linked to was legitimate but it was the only one I could find with the official release date announcement and it currently also links to the youtube pages I linked to in the update section above. Now it appears that the Steam Store listing is backing up that Twitter account. For the time being it appears everything that came out of that Twitter page regarding the release date was legitimate. Once again, thank you so much for voicing your concerns regarding the validity of the content in the initial version of the article and I hope that you and all the FNAF fans enjoy the game when it launches next month. God Bless and thanks again for being an important part of the GUG community.

      While I still have my reasons for doubting that Twitter account, I do appreciate all your response, and I’m very glad you pointed out the Steam page…because when I checked it, it states the game was released…TODAY.
      Credit to Scott for his curveballs, lol.

    Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I originally debated with myself on whether or not to even publish this announcement but after researching Scott’s website, his Twitter (as provided by the @real_scawthon on his site), and other articles on the announcement here: and here:, I finally decided to publish the story.

    The Twitter account I linked to may very well be a fake and if it is I can assure you that we will issue a redaction to the story and an apology to Cawthon as we have done in similar circumstances in the past for other articles. However, there were several images on the Twitter account that seem to have been pulled from some unseen footage of the new trailer. There was also some engagement with fans on the Twitter account in question and while I am not entirely sure how active Cawthon is on Twitter the announcements on there seemed to be well paced and teased professionally as any other developer would do. This is another reason I decided to publish the story as I didn’t see any immediate reason to doubt the credibility of the announcement. Also to date, I have seen no indication on any of the other two sites that reported this same story that Cawthon has reached out to them to clarify the facts or stated that he did not make the announcement. As the writer of this piece I will keep a close eye on anymore news surrounding the official release date of FNAF 4 and the article will be updated if anything changes.

    Thank you so much for sharing your concerns with us about this shared passion for gaming and accurate reporting. God bless and we hope you enjoy all of the content that GUG has to offer.

      Thank you so much for taking my comment into consideration; I do hope it didn’t come off as rude or accusatory, it was just really getting to me.
      I have seen evidence elsewhere that the date-shift may be factual, but I’m still skeptical of the Twitter page in question, for other reasons along with my previous details.
      Either way, I thank you and apologize again for any improper voicing on my part. I do appreciate what you all do here at GUG, and I certainly wish for the continued best for the site 🙂
      GOD BLESS!!

    Hey! First time posting, but it’s over an issue with the facts…the Twitter page you linked to, the one announcing the shift in the day of the game’s release, seems to be an impersonator. Scott’s website states that his Twitter page is “@real_scawthon”. The page you linked uses that only as a username, not an address; and there is a Twitter account that uses the address: …maybe I don’t know how Twitter works exactly, and for all I know, the date shift could be real, but the other page seems sketchy all the way around, and it upsets me when things like this occur…
