All FNAF games in release & chronological order

Scott Cawthon's FNAF survival horror game series is an engaging experience full of surprises and profound lore. The universe is complex, and there's not much information about the timeline of some games. The series of installments moves around in time, with some of the latest games being prequels in the canon timeline.

Although the franchise's fandom is divided on the exact timeline of events, we have attempted a guide that chronologically lists all Five Nights at Freddy's (FNAF) games based on the events and the release date.

Five Nights at Freddy's revolves around Freddy Fazbear's pizza shop. The universe of FNAF continues to expand with novelties, spin-offs and minigames, and games and novels. 

There is also a movie adaptation in the works. The series is a battle of survival against horrifying animatronic creatures led by William Afton, the main antagonist.
