Book publisher Scholastic have announced they have reached a deal to publish with Scott Cawthon. This means that Five Nights at Freddy’s: The Silver Eyes, which was self-published last year, will now be republished in paperback form by Scholastic this October.
Debra Dorfman, Vice President of Scholastic released this statement…
“We are thrilled to be publishing the Five Nights at Freddy’s young adult book series and to partner with creator Scott Cawthon. 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.”
Scott Cawthon also commented of the deal by saying..
“I can’t think of a better marketing and publishing partner for Five Nights at Freddy’s than Scholastic. Their passion and commitment, coupled with their proven track record with franchise in the [young adult] space, made them a natural choice for me.”
A second and third title are expected to be released in 2017 and 2018. Striker Entertainment brokered the deal between Cawthon and Scholastic.
