The announcement was posted on Cawthon’s official website, and vaguely referenced some responses he had gotten during the last week. This comes simply 4 days after he made a “last post” on the FNAF subreddit the place he acknowledged that “maybe it’s better that [he] get canceled and retire.”

Cawthon has been embroiled in an issue over the previous few weeks.  Twitter customers discovered he had donated 1000’s of {dollars} to politicians and political candidates with transphobic and homophobic political views. These politicians included Mitch McConnell (to whom he donated $5000), Tulsi Gabbard (one other $2500), and even former president Donald Trump.

Instead of supporting candidates that did shield the LGBT group, Cawthon acknowledged:

Even if there have been candidates who had higher issues to say to the LGBT group straight, and larger guarantees to make, I believed that their stances on different points would have ended up doing a lot better hurt to these communities than good.

In his retirement announcement, Cawthon states that he has seen “tremendous love and support over this last week, a lot of which has come from the LGBTQ community.” He provides that, whereas he can be retiring, the Five Nights At Freddy’s sequence will nonetheless proceed. “Someone else will eventually be running the show,” Cawthon states, and that particular person can be “someone of [his] choosing, and someone that [he] trust[s].”
