Five Nights at Freddy's World, an RPG spinoff of the popular jump-scare game, has been pulled from Steam after a disastrous launch last Thursday. In a Steam community post for Five Nights at Freddy's 4, developer Scott Cawthon explained why it was pulled.
"Hi everyone, I wanted to make a post about the fate of FNaF World. Even though the game had a "Very Positive" rating with 87%, I was not satisfied with the reviews and ratings it was getting."
"For that reason, I've decided to remove the game from Steam. I've also asked Valve to make it so that the game can be refunded regardless of the amount of the time it has been owned, meaning that anyone can get a refund at any time. It may take them a while to set that up, but it will be in place soon."
Cawthorn then announced that World would be getting a fully 3D overworld map for when it was eventually re-released. Even more surprising, he then revealed that "from this point forward, the game will always be free," regardless of whether the gamer owned the game previously or not.
