Two days ago, Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location was delayed.
The announcement post went up on Tuesday, in great detail, about Scott Cawthon's concerns regarding the dark subject matter and public expectations. In either an elaborate troll or merely a joke at everyone's expense, an edit was later added to the bottom of the post.
Faithful media outlets dutifully reported on the delay, because who honestly expects a creator to announce something like that and not actually mean it? Maybe everyone should, given that he played a similar trick with Five Nights at Freddy's 3.
Admittedly, the post was a little over the top, waffling about how to make things "kid-friendly" and not offend anyone, while at the same time promising to deliver something that would make fans proud.
But now we have more questions. Are we still getting a "mature" version of the game? It's hard to tell if it was just added to appear legitimate and build up the hype or if it's a troll within a troll.
Imagine this. Scott announces a delay, adds part about releasing more mature version later. Everyone ignores it because the whole thing was a troll right? But then he still releases it!
For a creator who's had such a colorful history messing with his fans, it's not out of the realm of possibility.
Only time will tell, and I suppose we may find out when the game is released tomorrow. But while you're waiting see what he really has up his sleeve (if we ever do), check these out in the meantime:
