Five Nights at Freddy’s creator might delay next game, Sister Location, because it’s too adult

Sister Location delay

Five Nights at Freddy’s: Sister Location is due out at the end of this week, October 7, but the game’s creator has just released a post saying he might delay it, because it’s too adult. 

Get even more frightened with our list of the best zombie games.

“Hey guys, I wanted to post an announcement that this game might be postponed, and I’m not really sure when it would be released,” says developer Scott Cawthon in a totally reassuring Steam update. “There are certain plot elements that are very dark, to the point where I sometimes feel sick.

“There would be no easy fix to this. I either release it Friday as it is, or I delay it by several months to completely rework the plot into something kid-friendly. I’m unsure what I’m going to do. As always, thanks for your support.”

Now I’m no games developer, but I know enough about the process to know this stuff has probably been locked down for a while, so it seems strange that it’s a problem now. Unless, of course, this is all some genius marketing ploy to get the kids excited.

Reading that delay announcement as a kid would only have only made me want to play it more, after all. If the comments beneath his post are anything to go by, his audience are absolutely lapping it up too, begging him to release it as it is. We’ll find out if it launches on Friday, I suppose.
