It appears that only two months after the launch of Five Nights at Freddy's 2, developer Scott Cawthon is returning to the world of twitchy night watchmen and deadly pizzeria animatronics for Five Nights at Freddy's 3.

The photo you see above recently appeared on Cawthon's website under the name "fnaf3.jpg." Viewing this as more than coincidence, PC Gamer attempted to contact Cawthon for some sort of confirmation that Five Nights at Freddy's 3 was in development. While they weren't able to speak to Cawthon directly, he did send over a revealing auto-reply email. "Five Nights at Freddy's 3 is in production," the message stated. "Please do not email me asking any questions about it; NO questions about FNaF3 will be read or answered!" Obviously Cawthon offered no further details on the game, but that does sound like confirmation of its existence.

For those unaware, the Five Nights at Freddy's games cast players as a security guard who must survive the night alone in a Chuck E. Cheese-style pizzeria where all the mechanical critters have become murderous. These are simple games, relying on limited movement options and quick reflexes, but they've become beloved among the Let's Play set for their effective jump scares and overwhelming tension.
