'Dark Souls 3' Developer Not Doing Sequel, Working On Three New Games Instead
Fans hoping for a "Dark Souls 3" sequel would surely be disappointed with its developer's latest announcement. From Software just revealed that it is not developing an installment to the highly successful game, at least not at the moment.
However, From Software has something up its sleeve. In lieu of a "Dark Souls 3" sequel, the game developer is busy with other projects, well, three projects in fact.
This was revealed by From Software president Hidetaka Miyazaki that the firm is not keen in developing a "Dark Souls 3" sequel at the moment, reports Kotaku. In fact, Miyazaki explains that further development for the series is currently on hold because they do not want the company to be known as a "Dark Souls"- only company.
For now, Miyazaki revealed that From Software is doing three projects. One is an action role-playing game with a dark fantasy setting almost similar to "Dark Souls 3," reports Attack of the Fanboy. However, Miyazaki assures that the game would still standout because the new game will approach the material from a different angle.
The second game that From Software is doing is described as a bit odd. It is a reboot of an existing title but with a completely different take. According to Miyazaki, the game is entirely different from what the company had previously done.
The third game in the works is most likely a new "Armored Core" game. Miyazaki was even apologetic to fans because From Software did not come up with a new "Armored Core" game sooner than fans have expected. "Armored Core" was the game that launched his career as a developer and Miyazaki feels that in the end, they have to make a new entry.
This new announcement by From Software should be positive news, even for Dark Souls fans. After all, three new games could be a lot better than a single "Dark Souls 3" sequel.
