Five Nights at Freddy's 4, the fourth game released in the popular horror series in less than a year, hit this summer. At the time, Freddy's creator Scott Cawthon assured fans there would not be a Five Nights at Freddy's 5. He's sticking to that, but he's revealed that the Freddy's series is not completely finished.

Rather than making another horror game, Cawthon's next title will be a role-playing game called FNAF World, the developer revealed in a post on the Five Nights at Freddy's 4 Steam page.

"It's very important for me to say again that there will NOT be a Five Nights at Freddy's 5," Cawthon's post reads. "The story is complete, and the Halloween update and new game will not add to it."

Instead, Cawthon decided he wanted to do more with the Freddy's characters "because they are so near and dear to my heart." He says that FNAF World will involve players forming a party using a full selection of characters from across the Freddy's series in multiple forms.

"The bad news is that it's unlikely that a demo will be ready for Halloween like I had hoped," Cawthon writes, "since the game's scope is significantly larger than previous games in the series."

He promises that a free demo of FNAF World will be available eventually, though. The game will be released on PC, Android and iOS, although Cawthon does not yet have a release date in mind. A Five Nights at Freddy's movie is also in the works at Warner Bros.
