Is Springtrap Coming To Dead By Daylight? It seems like for the longest time a portion of the fanbase has been asking this question, dreaming of concepts and attempting to wish the chapter into existence. There’s even been a petition (that gained close to 70,000 signatures) to show the devs how much the community wanted a Five Nights at Freddy’s and Dead by Daylight chapter. More recently the question became so frustrating (read: toxic) that the mods on the deadbydaylight subreddit had to actually ban Five Nights at Freddy’s as a topic. Of course, part of the issue stemmed from the comments surrounding politics and the FNAF creator, but frankly, that’s a whole can of worms we don’t want to open right here, so we’ll just focus on the original question. Read on, we’ll do our best to explain everything (and anything) there is to know about a FNAF Chapter in Dead By Daylight.

What have the developers said about a FNAF Chapter?
From what we can see, almost nothing. From a quick search, it seems the only time FNAF has been mentioned by the Behavior Interactive team was during a Dead by Daylight Developer Stream in 2018. Even then, it’s hardly the most convincing evidence that Springtrap or FNAF would be added.
For context, the devs were asked: “Recently, you talked about licensed movie Killers you would like to see. What are some licensed video game Killers you would like to see?” To which a UI Designer named Sarah replied with support for Five Nights at Freddy’s.
But that’s about it.
Of course, there’s obviously a chance Springtrap could be introduced as part of Dead by Daylight’s 6th Anniversary celebrations, but right now, there’s certainly no evidence to suggest it’s actually happening.
Dead By Daylight Springtrap Teasers and Leaks
Or, rather, the complete lack thereof.
Although the developers and creatives behind Dead By Daylight have often teased fans plenty with potential licensed killers, such as Candyman, the amount of teasers for Springtrap are almost non-existent from what we can tell.
Most, if any, seem to rely on mental gymnastics to explain how even the smallest image/word/blury shape must of course be the latest clue.
More recently some fans were convinced that a DBD teaser was pointing towards FNAF, because of the ’87’ but this merely turned out to be for Hellraiser. So, even today, we’ve not really had any clues or teasers which we could accurately suggest Springtrap or FNAF is in the works.
So uh, Hellraiser was released in 1987. But then… one of FNAF's central plot points was "The Bite of '87"… so… the debate continues?
