Scott Cawthon has been busy helping out with the "Five Nights at Freddy's" movie and the book versions of his best-selling horror video game. As for another instalment, nothing is set moving forward, and folks are waiting to see if Cawthon regains the itch to create a new title.

The attention is currently centred on the upcoming "Five Nights at Freddy's: Twisted Ones," a game that picks up from the 2015 novel "Five Nights at Freddy's: Silver Eyes." Following that is "The Freddy Files," the first-ever official guide to the game that aims to expose some lore and provide tips to those who want some unsolicited help.

Meanwhile, a curious Amazon listing shows a "Five Nights at Freddy's: Survival Logbook" reportedly scheduled for December 26, 2017. Worth noting is that the page seems bare; some believe it may even be fake.

"Survival Logbook" may be a jab towards the direction of the "The Freddy Files" in a sense. Obviously, its intent is to give gamers some help for the video game – probably covering other things that the upcoming guide may overlook.

The description of the "Five Nights at Freddy's: Survival Logbook" claims that it is meant to guide new night guards at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza, offering them a chance to reflect on their first week on the job. It includes quizzes and training to produce the best employees at Freddy's, though there is a  cryptic ending that calls for one to fill in the emergency contact information.

The description for the logbook should be tempting to gamers looking for more help and reference. It looms as a good reference for FNaF gamers if it is authentic. Until Scott Cawthon addresses it (though he can easily ignore it as well), the news should be taken lightly before immediately jumping to any conclusion.

December is still a long way off, so it would be best to focus on the novels on Cawthon's end. "Five Nights at Freddy's: Twisted Ones” is due on June 27, after which it will be followed by "The Freddy Files." Once these are settled, fans can see if the "Five Nights at Freddy's: Survival Logbook" is legit or simply a prank.
