In an interview with Japanese site 4gamers, Hidetaka Miyazaki hinted that From Software was hard at work on three projects, one of which could be Armored Core.
If mech-fighting is your thing, there may be something to interest you in the best space games on PC.
The interview, entirely in Japanese, explores how the From Software director would like to revisit some of the company's most beloved titles.
When asked if the studio had 'abandoned' Armored Core Verdict Day, Miyazaki told 4Gamers "Of course not. Some time passed since Armored Core Verdict Day, and there was a difficult situation for Armored Core, but it is not going to end the series."
Earlier in the same interview, when asked what projects the team were working on, he replied: "Our future direction is, I will do three big projects. One an action RPG with dark fantasy, intended to be represented by a different approach to Dark Souls.
"The other one is a new game and a reboot, the title of which we have been working on the past, there is a clue. The last one, is something different from our usual approach. Perhaps something a little strange."
It's possible Miyazaki in his infinite cheekiness was dropping hints throughout the interview for Armored Core and a knowing wink in that answer might have some already confirming the news.
What we do know already is that Dark Souls, Demon Souls and Bloodborne are not being revisited so soon, so AC seems like an appropriately long ago series for From to dig up.
