Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach was released in 2021 and is the latest entry in the indie horror franchise. FNaF has grown to be one of the most recognizable franchises in horror, and is set to receive a film adaptation later this year. Ahead of Security Breach’s arrival on Switch, we spoke with the team at Steel Wool Studios about adding their own story to the franchise legacy.
Shacknews’ Greg Burke spoke with Ray McCaffrey, an executive producer at Steel Wool Studios to learn more about the team’s work on FNaF: Security Breach. During the interview, he tells us what it was like to step into such a popular franchise and put a new spin on it. FNaF fans are deeply passionate about the series and its lore, so there were big shoes to fill when jumping into the universe that Scott Cawthon created back in 2014.
McCaffrey also spoke about building environments for Security Breach. The game takes place in a mall, a strong departure from the closed pizza restaurants featured in previous games. He had a solid level of freedom when it came to creating the different areas within the mall.
