Revered director of the Dark Souls series Hidetaka Miyazaki has said there are no plans for sequels or remakes, but From Software is working on a new IP.
If you’ve already finished Dark Souls III and are looking for more deep lore and challenging combat try our collection of the best RPGs on PC.
In an interview with Chinese site GGN Gamer (and put into English by the denizens of NeoGAF) the From Software president said”rather than make another sequel, I think it’s time we take a step to a new direction. Development of a new IP has already begun.”
On top of this, further attempts to ask about a Demon’s Souls remake were met with confirmation that old or new games in the existing Dark Souls, Bloodborne or Demon’s Souls universe are unlikely for several years.
“We want to try making new things,” Miyazaki said. “There’s absolutely no plan right now for any sequels, spin-offs or tie-ins. But I can’t say for certain the possibility is zero per cent. For example, if a From Software developer come to me five years from now and beg ‘please let me make another Dark Souls’ then I will not rule out the possibility to let my subordinates start a new project.”
Dark Souls III will continue to receive the two expansion DLCs it was originally promised, with the first arriving in autumn this year and the second to follow in early 2017.
