After four games' worth of puppet-based jump scares, it's not surprising thatcreator wants to try something new for his next game.
Not that he's leaving the franchise behind; the developer's next project will still feature the demonic Freddy Fazbear and friends, but it will be a party-based RPG where you control a selection of nightmarish puppets from throughout the horror series.
“The new game that I'm working on will be called FNAF World,” says Cawthon in. “It will not be a horror game, but a role playing game where you create a party using the huge selection of characters from the FNaF games, including the classic, withered, toy, phantom, and nightmare versions. I've been working steadily on characters and hope to start on enemy models next week.”
Originally the plan was to have a demo of the new game ready for Halloween, but due to its more ambitious nature Cawthon has had to abandon that plan. A free demo is still in the works, but it might be a while before we see it.
FNAF World will be released on PC, Android, and iOS.
