Looking for the Poppy Playtime Chapter 3 release date? Join the queue. Arriving and causing a storm at the tail-end of 2021, Poppy Playtime has shaken up the horror genre in much the same way Amnesia did in 2010 and Five Nights at Freddie's did later down the line. But its story seems far from complete right now.

Almost a year on from release, we're all wondering when the next chapter could release, and we've got a few ideas. Down below, we're going to drum up a few reasons why we believe Poppy Playtime Chapter 3 could arrive sooner rather than later. Let us be clear, though: this is all just speculation for now. Until the developers announce an official launch date, we can't be absolutely certain.

For more games you'll probably see a lot of on Twitch and YouTube, turn to Roblox. We have Shindo Life codes for the ninjas out there, Anime Adventures codes, Soul War codes, Rainbow Piece 2 codes, and Project Slayers codes as well. That should satisfy just about anyone.

What Is the Poppy Playtime Chapter 3 Release Date?

Officially speaking, a Poppy Playtime Chapter 3 release date is unknown right now. The developers haven't publically announced it yet, so there's no way to be sure when the next story might drop.

Even still, we can use some educated guesswork to speculate as to when the Poppy Playtime Chapter 3 release date could be.

Right now, we're anticipating it to release on October 12, 2022. Why? Look at that date again. If it looks familiar, that's because it's the same date that Poppy Playtime first hit Steam. Without any solid leads to go off, we're thinking a Poppy Playtime Chapter 3 release date could line up with the first anniversary of the game.

With as large a fanbase as it has already, it would make sense for the developers to ride the wave of the anniversary celebrations fans will no doubt flood social media platforms with. Once all eyes are on the game again, spontaneously launching Poppy Playtime Chapter 3 could be a great plan.

It would mean a much shorter development time than the seven months it seems to have taken them to get Chapter 2 out, but with the team growing massively in recent months due to its steady increase in popularity, there's every chance development of Chapter 3 could be expedited.

Oh, and you're wondering whether about a potential Poppy Playtime PlayStation, Xbox, or Switch release, we've got a guide for that too.

When Will Poppy Playtime Chapter 2 Be Free?

Again, this is just speculation, but Poppy Playtime Chapter 2 could be made free to everyone on the game's first anniversary as well.

Chapter 1 went free as soon as Chapter 2 released, and while that's a great way to bring new players in and shift copies of a paid episode, there's no guarantee they'll do the same with Chapter 2 when Chapter 3 releases.

They might, but there's no real precedent set for that like with other episodic games like Life is Strange - which commonly makes the first episode free but keeps the remaining four or five as paid DLC.

Still, when you're dealing with a younger audience, keeping the price of admission as low as possible can make all the difference. We'll just have to wait and see.
