Five Nights At Freddy’s: Security Breach Release Date Pushed Back

Scott Cawthon

So much for getting ‘Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach’ sooner rather than later. Considering we’ve only seen trailers so far and no in-depth gameplay mechanics, it was a bit of a giveaway; a delay was coming.
Luckily it’s not a delay that shoves the game into the next year, but it’s a letdown nonetheless. EGM reported that the news of the pushed-back release date came down via Reddit. This isn’t some secondhand rumor. Nope. This all came from FNAF’s creator himself:

Just in case the post gets pulled or doesn’t show up, we’re going to quote it below:

Hey everyone, so here is your big Security Breach news for the week.

As you all know, Security Breach was originally planned to come out at the end of 2020, but as we kept working on it and kept adding to it, it just kept getting bigger and bigger and needed more time to finish. And now, again, I’ve made the decision to put more time and money into it to make sure it’s finished properly, and that means a late 2021 release instead of an early 2021 release like I had originally wanted. It will be worth it!

I know it’s disappointing, but I didn’t want you all to walk away empty handed so I made something for the community:

However! Scott is offering a consultation. The link he left in the Reddit post takes us to a download page for an ‘FNAF’ beat-em-up game! ‘Security Breach: Fury’s Rage’ is free to play. It’s better than nothing for sure.
‘Security Breach’ looks like an exciting entry in the series regardless of the slipping release date. Unlike many other FNAF titles, this one goes for a full first-person exploration/survival experience.

Just having played the previous games isn’t enough to fully understand what’s going on. The insane number of plots and threads that could all connect to ‘Security Breach’ has been taking place in a series of books and the games. If you’re a little behind on the lore, I’d suggest checking out Game Theory’s video to catch up.
