Keep this in mind, though released later, timeline wise FNAF (Five Nights at Freddy’s) 2, takes place way before FNAF 1.
In Five Nights at Freddy's 1, there are the four main animatronics; Freddy Fazbear, Foxy the pirate, Chica the chicken, and Bonnie the bunny. The remake of the Withered animatronics from FNAF 2. They are all located at Freddy Fazbears Pizzeria. The player plays the role of Mike Schmidt, who works the night shift as the night guard. Mike tries to survive the night during his night shift with just a limited amount of power. Throughout the night,, the player discovers a bit of lore inside the game.
In the East hall, old newspapers were posted along the walls of the pizzeria. Among those newspapers, it displayed information about five missing children, and how a suspect has been charged. As well as other newspapers that reported parent complaints about the stenches and bodily fluids, such as mucus and blood, coming from the animatronic suits. Due to the health concerns, there was a high chance of the pizzeria closing. One other piece of lore discovered in FNAF 1 is the “phone guy” , the person that guides you through all the 4-5 nights. Sadly though in Night 4, he died due to being attacked by the animatronics in FNAF 1. In order to distinguish the animatronics, watch out for these movementsIf you hear banging on the door, it’s Foxy, , and the moaning is Chica. The player can also hear Freddy’s little song before there is a jumpscare. There is a strong speculation that Golden Freddy killed the phone because the player can hear his jumpscared much MORE closer to the phone. The player hears him becoming scared and getting killed in the process of recording the last phone call.
In Five Nights at Freddy’s 2, the player plays Jeremy Fitzgerald as the night guard. There are now fresh faces to Freddy Fazbears Ent. and that is: Toy Bonnie, Toy Chica, Toy Freddy, and Mangle. The main four animatronics for this edition of the game. New characters also include Balloon boy and the Puppet. They are called the Toys since they are newer and look like dolls. Oh, if you’re wondering what happened to the ones before, they were dismantled, replaced and moved in the Parts and Service room. They are now used as spare parts for the Toys in case they get dismantled. Also, the old animatronics are now branded as “the Withers” since they are broken and well-withered. They look a lot different than in FNAF 1. In the game, the phone guy has talked to Jeremy. He referred to someone tampering with the animatronics and which is why the animatronics always try to head to the office Sadly, this led to the place closing down soon. On Night 6, the phone call was different because the player Jeremy is told that they will be working the day shift since it just became “available”¨. His job was to supervise or stand close to Mangle for a birthday party and make sure she doesn't get out of hand. This leads to the bite of 87´ where Mangle bit off Jeremy’s front lobe causing him to die. . Which takes the player to Fritz Smith, the person before Jeremy who was fired for tampering with animatronics.The player gets the chance to play him on the 7th night.
And that's all we need to know about FNAF2.
