Game franchise expands with books for young adults.
Striker Entertainment, Scottgames’ worldwide licensing agent, brokered the deal.
As part of the agreement,
Five Nights are Freddy’s: The Silver Eyes
, a novel that was self-published last year, will be published by Scholastic in paperback this October.
“We are thrilled to be publishing the
Five Nights at Freddy’s
young adult book series and to partner with creator Scott Cawthon,” says Debra Dorfman, vice president and publisher, global licensing, and media consumer products, Scholastic. “This spine-chilling series will expand upon unsolved mysteries of the game’s lore as well as bring new fans unfamiliar with the games to new, hair-raising series to read.”
Additionally, Scholastic will launch a second and third title based on the game franchise in 2017 and 2018 respectively.
“I can’t think of a better marketing and publishing partner for ‘Five Nights at Freddy’s’ than Scholastic,”
