When is FNF Week 8 Coming Out? Finally an update!
While it hasn’t quite hit the one-year anniversary since Week 7’s release (I checked), the question of, “When is FNF Week 8 coming out?” is one that’s gone quite a while without an answer.

On March 16th, Phantom Arcade suddenly dropped a Twitter video update for Friday Night Funkin on April 30th, 2022, featuring an appropriately Pico-focused trailer for Newgrounds’ annual Pico Day.
This video, as well as a follow-up tweet, seem to signify this not actually being the long-awaited Week 8 update but rather something entirely different. After some not-particularly-difficult pausing amidst the visual effects, the new content mentioned in order are Erect difficulty, new features, cutscenes, and new characters. Additionally, Phantom Arcade’s tweet reads, “You’ll get a better look at it once the latest piece that continues after Week 7 releases Pico Day.”
The wording in the tweet, as well as the topics shown in the trailer, lead me to believe that this update will not be Week 8 itself, but rather a general game overhaul with features from the Kickstarter such as new playable characters. New cutscenes, however, could either imply new story content beyond Week 7 featuring more Pico or merely adding cutscenes to the original weeks.
