The Creator of the Five Nights at Freddy’s series has committed artistic suicide in the only way he found fit. A Twitch streamer by the name of SwingPoynt was playing the spin-off game Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria Simulator. In it, the streamer found out a complete lore explanation of the FNAF series.
The “Hidden Ending” to the game was reported by Nick Nocturne, also known as Night Mind. I have written articles about his work and his teachings in previous occasions as well. He brings attention to the streamer through a tweet mentioning how Swing is “The Hero of the Night”.

In the ending of the series, Scott Cawthon breaks contact with the Girl voice we’ve heard in Sister Location. Revealing that the actual name of the character is Elizabeth, and that she has been misinformed.
Cawthon then talks about his own series in a retrospective, talking about how the player and everyone surrounding them has been called into a “labyrinth of sounds, smells, misdirection and misfortune”. He also mentions that this is where the story ends.
He continues with a message to the brave volunteer who somehow found this job listing – Referring to the player who has been thrown into the games under the premise of working a night shift. – Mentioning that, while there was a way for them to get out planned for them, he had the feeling that this isn’t what they want and that they are right where they want to be.
As the background becomes a sea of flames due to a temperature number rising. Scott mentions that this place will not be remembered, and the memory of everything that started this can end, as any tragedy should.
After a final speech with Elizabeth, Scott mentions that this ends, for all of them, finally cutting communications, ending the Five Nights at Freddy’s series. Honestly, there’s not much else that can be said about this. The franchise definitely needed an ending, and Scott Cawthon ended things the only way he knew how, by burning everything.
