Scott Cawthon may have been put on this planet to scare the heck out of people, and now his creepy animatronic characters will get to do their thing in augmented reality. Today, AR developer Illumix released an announcement trailer for Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery, which looks like it'll bring Freddy Fazbear and pals into your home.
It's a short announcement trailer, so it's unclear how Special Delivery will have you survive a night at home whilst evading the series' iconic animatronics. The recent virtual reality adaptation of Five Nights at Freddy's recreated the classic camera monitoring and door slamming gameplay in a Freddy Fazbear's Pizza location, but with an AR game you'll presumably be limited to the hiding spots and routes of egress that exist in whatever space you're playing in. If this game results in hours and hours of YouTubers hiding behind their couches in terror, that's probably a good marker of success.
Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery is the first announced game title from Illumix—last year, TechCrunch reported that the company raised $8.6 million in seed funding to begin work on an original game and a licensed title.
Cawthon added the game to his list of upcoming projects, which still includes a Five Nights at Freddy's movie adaptation, a AAA Game, a new book series, and more. Work on the Five Nights at Freddy's movie has come in fits and starts, but Blumhouse Productions is still producing the project with Cawthon working on the script and Chris Columbus ("Pixels," "Home Alone") attached to direct.
