Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery is the next terrifying installment in the FNaF franchise. Players will confront malfunctioning animatronics in their real world and attempt to survive these horrors come to life. Through the game, players subscribe to Fazbear Entertainment's brand new "Fazbear Funtime Service" and get their favorite animatronics on-demand. Due to unfortunate circumstances, the visiting animatronics malfunction and attack subscribers instead of entertaining them.
Players must confront an endless stream of hostile animatronics that will follow them wherever they go. The question is, how long can players survive? And just what is happening at Fazbear Entertainment?
▶ IMMERSE YOURSELF in terrifying augmented reality audio-visual attack sequences exclusively designed for each animatronic
▶ EXPERIENCE real-time location based gameplay, where FNaF animatronics will pay you a visit wherever you are and wherever you go
▶ SURVIVE animatronic attacks by using your limited resources wisely (including battery, flashlight, and shocker)
▶ COLLECT parts, CPUs, and plushsuits to ASSEMBLE, test, repair and deploy your own hotwired animatronics, and search & collect remnant in your environment
▶ SEND ANIMATRONICS against your friends and other players, and get the highest streak on the leaderboard
The gameplay of Special Delivery can be mainly divided into 3 main sections: the map, the camera and the workshop.
The player can see the map along with the player's location. With the map, the player can locate the animatronics around the player to see how close they are to the player. Once they are roaming around the player, they will enter the player's "house" as soon as possible. Normally, the player will not be able to see the animatronic's identities unless a Transponder is used, or it is an animatronic sent by other players. The player can also purchase Instant Delivery on a certain animatronic so they will get to the player within seconds. On the map, the player is allowed to use items such as Transponder, Animatronic Lures, Radio Jammer and so on.
The camera is used for 2 purposes: to defeat the animatronic that is attacking the player, and to collect remnant. When the animatronic has entered the player's "house", they will start roaming around the player's "room". However, the player is not able to see them and can only hear their footsteps. The player is given a Shocker as a weapon, along with a Flashlight (sometimes with Freddy Fazbear Mask or Noise Meter depending on the animatronics). The animatronic will sometimes appear briefly in front of the player as a distraction. They will also "Haywire", which means they will appear in front of the player, glitching out and making noises. The player must look away as soon as possible (or wear the mask), before they attack the player (timing depends on the animatronic's difficulty). They will also run down towards the player, still invisible for several times. After a certain amount, they will turn visible when running, and it is when the player must use the shocker to defeat them.
Defeating an animatronic will give the player some Remnants some Parts, and some XP rarely even their Plush Suits, CPUs and MODs to use in the workshop section. It will also increase the player's streak. While the streak will make the animatronics enter "Rampage Mode", which means they will be more difficult to defeat, defeating them will give the players more rewards.
When there is no animatronic around, the camera can be used to collect Remnant. The player can collect them by using the flashlight to absorb them, or physically walk towards them to avoid the Dark Remnant carefully. If too many Dark Remnants are absorbed, the player will encounter RWQFSFASXC.
The workshop is where the player uses their Plush Suits, CPUs, Remnants and MODs collected. The player can purchase a bare endosketon to customize them and send them to other friends. Plush Suits will change their appearance, CPUs will change their attacking behavior, Remnants will increase the difficulty of defeating them, and MODs will change a certain setting of the animatronic.

A augmented reality video game for the Five Nights at Freddy's series was rarely mentioned by Scott Cawthon before 2018. However, Scott did mention that he was planning to make a AR game when he announced that Five Nights at Freddy's 6 is "canceled". He also apologized for not making the AR game along with other projects like console releases happens, and will seek for a bigger publisher to help out these projects.
In Dawko's interview with Scott, he had said that the AR game is in early stage production with another unknown company. Some time later, he made another update regarding future projects including the AR game. While he didn't said much about it, he said that "the impending doom of something hunting you will keep you up at night".
On August 8, 2019, the fifth anniversary of the Five Nights at Freddy's series, Scott made another update thread after the release of Five Nights at Freddy's VR: Help Wanted. He revealed the company developing the game is called Looking Glass (who changed their name later to be Illumix). He praised the graphics they had done for the game for being fantastic, and said that the estimated release date for the game will be October 2019.
About a month later, a Reddit user called "5541ggnik001" (which reads "lookingglass" from right to left) posted a teaser video for the AR game, and created a website for the game as well. People were not sure if the trailer was real or not. A few days later, however, a Snapchat filter was leaked and found, with Freddy's face and the game's logo. The game was revealed to be named Five Nights at Freddy's AR: Special Delivery, and the logo matched with the one that appeared in the teaser trailer as well. The filter was later deleted (but was added back after the proper announcement).
Not long after, an announcement trailer was posted by the same user who changed their username to "Illumix Official", and the website was updated with more details and the ability to pre-register. The second teaser was also posted on October 16th along with the early access tickets to those who had pre-registered. More infos were then revealed a week later, revealing the game will be free and that it would be delayed until before Thanksgiving 2019.
A while later, a puzzle hunt was set up by Illumix, where they posted a puzzle piece from a teaser every day. It lasted 10 days, and not long after the final piece is revealed, the game was revealed to be on App Store and available for download. However, the game required an early access ticket to play, which they started giving out after a few hours. The game was then made to be a public early access one day later, and was officially launched November 25th, 2019
After the game's release, updates have been pushed out constantly, bringing new skins and characters, features, events and more. Furthermore, Illumix had also created their own AR engine for the game, which increases Android device compatibility and allows more unique features such as characters hiding behind objects in reality (RWQFSFASXC for example), as well as Mixed Reality features (Plushtrap for example).
