Scott Cawthon has updated his website yet again with another Five Nights At Freddy’s 4 teaser, this time with a nightmarish picture of Foxy. Or is it Mangle? The grotesqueness makes it a little hard to tell.
Of course, those who’ve been following the Five Nights At Freddy’s news know it’s definitely Foxy. For those out of the loop, Cawthon has been teasing us about the fourth installment of Five Nights At Feddy’s for several weeks now. It began a few months ago with a simple image of Freddy’s hat, which fans interpreted to mean that the series finished with Five Nights At Freddy’s 3. A few weeks later, however, Cawthon posted the same image, but with the hat missing. This sent Freddy fans into a frenzy, and it wasn’t long before a fourth game was confirmed with a horrifying image of an animatronic with Freddy heads glued to its body. Since then, Cawthon’s been posting new images to his site every week or two. The first featured Bonnie, the second featured Chica, and now we have Foxie.
So far, all of the teasers share a few things in common. The animatronics being shown, apart from the first image, are all from the original four (which means Freddy should be next). They are all the nightmare versions, and each image can be brightened to reveal the word “Nightmare.” Foxy’s image, however, reveals different text when brightened. It’s hard to make out, but the brightened image below shows the words “out of order”.
There aren’t many people that can send their fans into a frenzy with three words hidden in a scary picture, but Cawthon is one of them. It’s clear at this point that the question posed by the previous images (“Was it me?”) is referring to the “bite of ’87.”Cawthon has made that clear, or at least as clear as Cawthon ever makes anything, by interspersing the numbers 8 and 7 throughout the HTML code of his website.
The Foxy image has fans fascinated not only because it features different text, but because Foxy is the animatronic most people have assumed was responsible for the bite, based on his sharp teeth. Of course, many others believe the chomper was Freddy because of what looks like a hand print on his face (it gets a little complicated, but suffice to say Foxy and Freddy are the main contenders for being the biter). With the Freddy teaser due out next, we may be in for some pretty interesting (if horrific) hints about the next game.
