Five Nights at Freddy’s World needs some fixing up, free at a later date.
Originally slated for a February 19 release date, Five Nights at Freddy’s World became available on Steam yesterday and was taken down today.
Designer, Scott Cawthon said, “Even though the game had a “Very Positive” rating with 87%, I was not satisfied with the reviews and ratings it was getting.”
Cawthon went on to say, Five Nights at Freddy’s World needed a new coat of paint and some touching up, despite the positive response from those who played it. As a result of the news, Five Nights at Freddy’s World will be available for free to anyone who plays it in the future. If you paid for the game yesterday, don’t worry, a full refund is headed your way soon.

Game bugs and technical problems are sadly becoming a norm in today’s world of games, but to release a game and pull it within a 24 hour period is a little surprising. One has to ask, why release a game early, before deadline, if the team had a few more weeks to polish and fix the issues?
To Cawthon’s credit, it is a bold move to take a game off the market completely and make it free at a later date (not yet announced).
