When Five Nights At Freddy's: Security Breach launched, some fans were disappointed at the lack of a multiplayer mode. The most recent FNAF game aims to change the franchise, putting players in to the shoes of Gregory, a boy inside Freddy Fazbear's Mega Pizzaplex, who goes face to face with several demented animatronics while trying to survive the night time. It would seem such as the perfect map and set-up for multiplayer, there is however a pretty good reason FNAF: Security Breach does not have multiplayer yet.
Multiplayer survival horror games are routinely a success, with games like Phasmophobia getting incredibly well-liked in 2022, and Dead By Daylight and Back 4 Blood offering players jump scares and fun ways to survive (and die) with friends online. 5 Nights At Freddy's games have likewise turned out to be especially popular over the years, and so it's somewhat surprising that developer Steel Wool Studios didn't include multiplayer in FNAF: Security Breach.
Surviving the threat of sinister animatronics together, as players navigate the Mega Pizzaplex, appears like an awesome idea. Offering players a chance to end up being the animatronics themselves, resulting in an Among Us-type of Imposter versus crewmates scenario, also sounds enticing. However, so far, it doesn't seem like FNAF: Security Breach will get multiplayer any time soon – although developers haven't ruled it out via future DLC or updates. Still, fans shouldn't obtain hopes up too high.
Will FNAF: Security Breach Multiplayer Release As DLC?
In a recent interview with Steel Wool Studios and content creator Dawko online, Steel Wool Studios' executive producer Ray McCaffrey said that as an indie developer, it was quite the undertaking to try and produce multiplayer and also the full title as well, which is why FNAF: Security Breach does not have multiplayer at this time. However, McCaffrey did say, “We talk about it, there is however no concrete plans.” So, the possibility is always out there. The entire video can be seen below:
A game like FNAF: Security Breach could greatly benefit from multiplayer because it could boost the game's longevity once players beat the storyline and view all of the endings. Even though it appears as though Steel Wool Studios is open to having multiplayer in FNAF: Security Breach, it doesn't seem incredibly likely at this point. Within the same video, developers hint at upcoming DLC for the game, though, therefore it is always possible a multiplayer mode can get added into Five Nights At Freddy's: Security Breach via future DLC, especially considering Steel Wool Studios has already discussed it and appears to need it hanging around.
