BEACON TRANSCRIPT – Hidetaka Miyazaki, the director of the Dark Souls franchise, made an announcement that might upset some users. The recently released DLC Ringed City is the only piece of content that will be part of the series. The team of developers has no plans at the moment to develop a new expansion or game related to the franchise.
Miyazaki revealed this during a recent interview he offered to Famitsu, a gaming magazine based in Japan. The interview was made public by Esuteru, the blog that hosts the magazine. Then, BlackKite, a Twitter user, was responsible for the translation.
A Dark Souls sequel will not see the light of day too soon
The interviewers opened the subject related to Ringed City, the latest DLC released for Dark Souls 3. They asked if From Software was planning a new release for the title. Unfortunately, Miyazaki said that they had no plans of creating new content for the franchise, or at least not in the close future.
However, Miyazaki is not completely happy with everything he had succeeded in implementing in the Dark Souls game. The games will remain under the form of a trilogy, but the director wished that Dark Souls 3 was less “incomplete”. Therefore, the possibility of a future title related to the Dark Souls trilogy is not completely excluded, but it might come sometime in the far future.
Possible future titles from the company
Dark Souls 3 might not have a sequel, but Miyazaki wants to develop new titles and projects. He is optimistic about their new work and thinks that the fans will be as excited as he is about the new releases. Actually, he and his studio are working on no more than three entirely new games. However, he did reveal nothing more about them, so the curious fans will have to wait a little.
Gamers have put all the pieces together and have already started making speculations on the new titles. Although Miyazaki said that one of the title would be completely new, fans hope that he will surprise them and bring a sequel to the popular Bloodborne.
In the meantime, gamers can entertain themselves with the latest Dark Souls 3 DLC, Ringed City. It is available for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, and you can purchase it any time.
