Five Nights at Freddy’s creator retires amid controversy over political donations

Scott Cawthon has announced that he is retiring, and will no longer work on the popular Five Nights at Freddy’s games, a series he began seven years ago. On his website Cawthon wrote, “I’ve had a blessed, fulfilling, and rich career. I’ve been shown great kindness and I’ve tried to show great kindness in return. I’ve tried to make some good games (let the debate ensue), and I’ve witnessed the creation of possibly the most creative and talented fanbase on the planet.”

Earlier this month it was revealed that Cawthon had donated significant amounts of money to conservative action committees and politicians, including Donald Trump. Many fans of the FNAF games are members of the LGBTQ+ community, and they reacted negatively to the news, which led to Cawthon announcing at the time “that’s something that I won’t apologize for.”
