In the wake of last year’s massive box-office success with their video game-to-film adaptation “Five Nights at Freddy’s,” Universal Pictures and Blumhouse are understandably gearing up for a sequel.

Universal President of Domestic Theatrical Distribution, Jim Orr, used the studio’s CinemaCon presentation this afternoon in Las Vegas to announce that “Five Nights at Freddy’s 2” is in the works for release in Fall 2025.

It took a long time to come to the screen, but the first film finally hit screens in October last year and made on a budget of $20 million. Reviews were generally negative from the critics but audiences were more forgiving.

Upon release, the film proceeded to smash records – taking in $39.4 million on its first day domestically and $80 million on its opening weekend and ultimately a worldwide gross just shy of $300 million.

It had the second-best day and date opening weekend, the best opening weekend for a horror film that year, the best opening from Blumhouse, the second highest opening for a video game film behind only “The Super Mario Bros. Movie”, and the most watched title ever in a weekend on Peacock.

The 2025 calendar currently has a barren back half of October which is when the film is likely to debut – sandwiched between “Tron: Areas” on October 10th and Marvel’s “Blade” on November 7th.
