I’m asked the same question again and again: when will I, a lowly console owner with nary a modicum of experience with a mouse and keyboard, have the opportunity to experience what it feels like to be hunted by the monstrous machinations in the Five Nights at Freddy’s series of freakishly popular indie horror games? If you’ve been playing vicariously through the likes of Pewdiepie or Markiplier — or yours truly, since I have and never will be above shameless plugs, even if they only serve to remind me how I desperately need to return to the YouTubes — then I have some good news for you.
Five Nights at Freddy’s series creator Scott Cawthon recently, and quietly, confirmed the series isn’t merely coming to consoles, they’re being remade for consoles.
“Actually, yes! It will happen. I’m talking with a few companies who are interested in doing console remakes of the original games,” revealed Cawthon when a fan asked if there was “any chance one of your games may get ported to a console?” It sounds as if a console release isn’t likely to happen this year, but it absolutely makes sense for such a successful series to expand its platform support.
