Five Nights at Freddy’s (FNAF) Canon/Main Series in Order
Since this is the most important one to look at, we’re going to check the main FNAF series in order first.
Five Nights at Freddy’s: Core Collection – FNAF 1 to 4 and Sister Location is available from Amazon here (affiliate link)
1. Five Nights at Freddy’s 1
Released: August 2014. Remastered: July 2019 for iOS and Android.
Plot: Welcome to your new summer job at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza, where kids and parents alike come for entertainment and food as far as the eye can see!
The main attraction is Freddy Fazbear, of course; and his two friends. They are animatronic robots, programmed to please the crowds!
The robots’ behavior has become somewhat unpredictable at night however, and it was much cheaper to hire you as a security guard than to find a repairman. From your small office you must watch the security cameras carefully… [Source: Amazon]
2. Five Nights at Freddy’s 2
Released: November 2014. Remastered: October 2019 for iOS and Android.
Plot: Welcome back to the new and improved Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza! In Five Nights at Freddy’s 2, the old and aging animatronics are joined by a new cast of characters.
They are kid-friendly, updated with the latest in facial recognition technology, tied into local criminal databases, and promise to put on a safe and entertaining show for kids and grown-ups alike! What could go wrong?
As the new security guard working nights, your job is to monitor cameras and make sure nothing goes wrong after-hours. The previous guard has complained about the characters trying to get into the office (he has since been moved to day-shift).

3. Five Nights at Freddy’s 3
Released: March 2015.
Plot: Thirty years after Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza closed it’s doors, the events that took place there have become nothing more than a rumor and a childhood memory, but the owners of “Fazbear’s Fright: The Horror Attraction” are determined to revive the legend and make the experience as authentic as possible for patrons, going to great lengths to find anything that might have survived decades of neglect and ruin.
At first there were only empty shells, a hand, a hook, an old paper-plate doll, but then a remarkable discovery was made… The attraction now has one animatronic…
4. Five Nights at Freddy’s 4
Released: July 2015.
Plot: In this last chapter of the Five Nights at Freddy’s original story, you must once again defend yourself against Freddy Fazbear, Chica, Bonnie, Foxy, and even worse things that lurk in the shadows.
Playing as a child whose role is yet unknown, you must safeguard yourself until 6am by watching the doors, as well as warding off unwanted creatures that may venture into your closet or onto the bed behind you.
You have only a flashlight to protect yourself. It will scare away things that may be creeping at the far end of the hallways, but be careful, and listen. If something has crept too close, then shining lights in its eyes will be your end.
