In a recent interview, Hidetaka Miyazaki, the father of the series of Dark Souls, spoke about the future of the now famous action-RPG saga and new projects in the pipeline at the From Software studio.
When questioned if we really came to the end of the series with The Ringed City, the second and last DLC of Dark Souls 3, this is what Miyazaki replied: “As I’ve said from the beginning, there are no further developments planned at the moment, at least.”
Taking a look at the past, and making a small retrospective of the series, he stated the following: “I can’t really say that I was able to do everything. As is the case with all of the games I’ve directed, each entry in the Dark Souls series has its own problems, and I carry those blunders. However, I think that even on this premise, Dark Souls was a happy series.”
At this point, many are wondering what exactly From Software is working on, and whether we will see the influence of Dark Souls in the upcoming titles that the company will churn in the future. “Since I’ve already started work on several, it would be a spoiler if I said something,” he replied to the matter. “One thing I can say is that our stance on game production has not changed. In making a new game, we’re not being conscious of making something that resembles Dark Souls, or on the other hand of making something that doesn’t resemble Dark Souls. Not being concerned about whether it is similar to Dark Souls, I plan on making a game that I want to make now, and that is interesting and worthwhile.”
What do you expect from the studio of From Software in the future? Meanwhile, we remind you that The Ringed City, latest expansion of Dark Souls 3, is now available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
