If you are expecting a remastering or remake of Demon’s Souls we have some good news for you, as it is likely to happen, however, it would not be From Software in charge of this project.
During an interview, the director of Demon’s Souls, Hidetaka Miyazaki, said the game could receive a remastering or remake, but it is not the director who must decide if the project happens.
“It seems like there was a misunderstanding in a previous interview in relation to a remake or a remastering of the game, so let me reiterate here,” he said to GameSpot. “The Dark Souls series is Bandai Namco Entertainment’s IP, and Demon’s Souls and Bloodborne is Sony Interactive Entertainment’s IP. Hence, the decision to do a remake or remastering is under their jurisdiction.”
“For me and for From Software, I don’t think we’ll be involved with their happening, but it could happen through another developer,” Miyazaki said.
Demon’s Souls was released for PlayStation 3 in 2009, and although it never received a direct sequel, it was the basis for the birth of the series Dark Souls and exclusive to PlayStation 4, Bloodborne.
Miyazaki, who led these games, except for Dark Souls II, was named president of From Software in 2014. Since that time, he mentioned that the future of the studio is in the creation of new games, and said he is working on a new IP.
