Ugh. I just can't get into Bob's Burgers. I have no idea what Five Nights at Freddy's is.

I wonder if the new games will use the previous 2011/13 mansion layout, or if they will go back to the current traditional layout.

Bob's Burgers should make for a fun licenced edition. Not too different in spirit from the Simpsons editions, though I doubt this one will be as detailed as those were (none of these recent themed games have been, imo)

Five Nights at Freddy's is a horror video game series, the basic premise being a Chuck-e-Cheese type restaurant is plagued by a tragic history involving the death of a child, and now the animatronic animal characters are all possessed by some vague, evil energy & they kill people.

No idea HOW a FNAF Clue game will work, but it should sell well enough given the series' popularity.

Huh. Interesting. FNAF sounds absolutely horrible. Oh well to each his own I guess. Murder is murder I guess. I guess it's only a matter of time until indiscriminate licensing gets us the Clue: SAW edition.

I don't see Bob's the same as Simpsons. Family Guy is more like the Simpsons, and even that Clue game was a major disappointment, underdeveloped and failed to capitalize on fan favorite aspects of that game. So you're probably right that Bob's will likely be underwhelming as well.

What's interesting here, is that I was told by a marketing executive that USAopoly approaches the licensors about developing a game on a franchise that might sell well. And it's they who develop the game, not the copyright owners. So it seems in some cases USAopoly is simply doing a half-assed job, especially where the IP owners don't really get involved.
