Very recently, fans of Five Nights at Freddy’s have uncovered new pieces of cryptic information in the source coding of Scottgames.com. This is something that came as a bit of a surprise to me, considering that the source coding has not been added to with messages such as this in a while, and Scott Cawthon, the developer of FNAF, had seemingly truthfully stated that he needed a break from the main game series, which can be read about in detail here. However, there has been more information discovered that can be theorized about from fans of the series.
The newest messages found in the source coding on Scottgames.com states, “You are crowding us.” “You can’t tell us what to do anymore.” “We outnumber you.” “We found a way to eject you.” “Ha, ha! Say goodbye to out friend!” After these messages were strewn throughout the source coding, it simply returns to letters and numbers that do not pertain to these sentences.
My biggest question is, why would Scott Cawthon keep updating and teasing the fans on something relating to the main game around the same time he poured his heart out on Reddit about how he needs time away and a break to refocus and make what his fans truly love? At this point, his pleas to be able to focus on what makes him and his true fans happy, and even the sincere apology, do not seem like a troll. It would only make sense by this point that this words are truth.
If Scott truly needs a break from the entire Five Nights at Freddy’s game series, than he is more than welcome to take that break. However, putting out cryptic coding on a teaser image while apologizing to your fans and stating you need a short hiatus to gather and refocus does not seem to make a lot of sense. Hopefully, Scott does take a break from the messages and teasers and focuses more on himself and how to improve the series rather than fully pleasing us.
However, I have fate in Scott Cawthon. There has always been a method to his madness, and his plans always seem to tie together and be wholesome at the end. While he is known for trolling and messing with his community, I believe he sincerely does need this break. Perhaps he has something bigger in store for us, and we are unable to see the bigger picture at this point. If there are any more mysterious coding messages sent through Scottgames.com or Fnafworld.com, this will send mixed vibes to his fans and community on sincerity. Once again, I have faith in whatever Scott is cooking up for the future of FNAF.
I truly hope that Scott sticks to his guns and takes the break he deserves without confusing the community any further. At this point, it seems fairly clear that FNAF 6 is cancelled. However, he could have something bigger in store for the near future. It simply takes time to see the big idea that Scott will present to us, I believe.
