Five Nights at Freddy’s Security Breach delayed to late 2021

Another one bites the dust.

Five Nights at Freddy’s Security Breach has been delayed into late 2021, developer Scott Cawthon has today declared.

First planned for a 2020 release, the title was delayed into early 2021 and now into later in this year.

“As you all know, Security Breach was originally planned to come out at the end of 2020, but as we kept working on it and kept adding to it, it just kept getting bigger and bigger and needed more time to finish,” Cawthon said on Reddit. “And now, again, I’ve made the decision to put more time and money into it to make sure it’s finished properly, and that means a late 2021 release instead of an early 2021 release like I had originally wanted. It will be worth it!”

As a means of apology, Cawthon stealth-dropped a Freddy’s fighter, playable here.

Five Nights at Freddy’s Security Breach heads to Windows PC, PS4 and PS5 later this year.
