Five Night’s At Freddy’s 3 is out on PC, Android version coming soon

In the ongoing bizarre saga that has been the Five Night’s At Freddy’s 3 promotional routine from Scott Cawthon, an even bigger twist has occurred, the game was released without any announcement or warning.

It just appeared on Steam and is now available for PC  Now that it is available, we do get to learn more about what will actually come with the game for Android since it doesn’t stray too far from the PC version. Also, ever the showman, FNAF creator Scott Cawthon has revealed new information about his highly anticipated sequel to the series in a mysterious way a couple of days before its release. A dark image appeared on his web page ScottGamesthat on the surface doesn’t reveal much of anything.

After some lighting manipulation, the picture is revealed to possibly be ‘Balloon Boy’ with an ominous message ‘Guess Who?’. Devotee’s to the series will recognize the character as a non animatronic doll found within the Freddy Fazbear’s hallways and rooms. It could also be a reference to the puppet character from the second game, that required player to crank a music box to keep at bay. 

Along side the creepy image is the number 10. Some have speculated that it’s a clue towards the release date of the game, possibly on March 10th. Obviously the game being out now kind of kills that. However maybe it means the Android version is coming on March 10th?
