Dark Souls creator Hidetaka Miyazaki has confirmed development of a new property has begun at From Software, and the studio will not be making a sequel to Dark Souls 3. There will be a few DLCs to be dropped, but after that there will more than likely be nothing more for Dark Souls in the future.
“There’s absolutely no plan right now for any sequels, spin-offs, or tie-ins,” he said. “But I can’t say for certain the possibility is 0% … What is certain for now is, to me personally Dark Souls is over. So rather than make another sequel, I think it’s time we take a step to a new direction,” Miyazaki stated in an interview with GGN Gamer (translated by NeoGaf).
A potential remake of Demon Souls was suggested to Miyazaki and he quickly shot it down by saying he wanted to make new things and move on. Miyazaki did add,” If a From Software developer come to me five years from now and [begged], ‘Please let me make another Dark Souls,’ then I will not rule out the possibility to let my subordinates start a new project.” So there is still hope for Dark Souls fans out there.
“I’m considering Dark Souls 3 to be the big closure on the series,” he said. “From Software and myself together want to aggressively make new things in the future.”
The first DLC pack for Dark Souls 3 will launch this fall. Players can possibly expect new armor sets, maps, bosses, etc, but not confirmed.
Should there be a sequel to Bloodborne since Dark Souls is over? Of should they just move on entirely?
