On February 19, that was the date on which was supposed ‘ to go on sale Five Nights at Freddy’s World,’ the new installment of the horror saga that radically changed genre to RPG. However, the game is already available on Steam, well ahead of schedule. A decision that Scott Cawthon, the creator of that series, certainly regrets having made.
In general, we are used to delays in releases, but for fans of the Five Nights at Freddy’s video games, this reversed situation comes as no surprise, given that it has happened before with the games that precede the newcomer.
Having come out a month earlier than expected, users have encountered a few bugs that have generated much criticism. In addition, the has also been highlighted lack of some specific options in titles of this genre, such as a screen that shows the statistics of our characters and their progress to check their skills, attacks, etc.
Due to all this situation, Scott Cawthon has had no choice but to write an apology on Steam for everything that has happened:
It’s not an ad that I enjoy writing, but I feel like it’s something I owe to the community. I have been accused of running too much with my games since the very first Five Nights at Freddy’s, but I had never felt like I had released a game so early … until now.
There are many options in the game that I should have had before going live, options that I talked about but ignored and did not implement, such as being able to see the skills that are performed during battle or being able to view a page of statistics of your characters. Those are the characteristics that any good RPG should have.
So I say this to a community that I have enjoyed and respected for a year and a half: I’m sorry. I wanted so much to show what I had done that I stopped paying attention to the things that were not done. I’m going to fix it; I will update the game with these features for the next few weeks. I’ll keep adding options to the game, and I’ll do the right thing.
Despite everything, if you want to get hold of ‘Five Nights at Freddy’s World’ you can buy it from here for € 9.99.
