FromSoftware is finishing up their next game, which is apparently already near the end of development.
In an interview with Japanese gaming website 4Gamer, FromSoftware and Elden Ring director Hidetaka Miyazaki revealed that the studio’s next game is already in the final stages of development.
According to the interview, the publication asked Miyazaki back in 2018 around the launch of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice how FromSoftware’s two unannounced games were shaping up. One unannounced game would go on to become Elden Ring, but this other unannounced game is still in the works, and according to Miyazaki, “development is currently in the final stages.”
No word on what this game might be, but one of the high-profile leaks around FromSoftware suggests the studio is working on a new Armored Core game, the company’s mech battle simulator.
Miyazaki himself revealed that he is already working on yet another game as director, with plans to work “on a more abstract fantasy than anything we’ve done in the past.”
The interview concludes with Miyazaki sharing that along with these new titles, more updates for Elden Ring are in the works. Considering each of the past Souls games like Dark Souls and Bloodborne received fairly substantial DLC campaigns, we can likely expect the same for Elden Ring.
FromSoftware isn’t slowing down after the critical and commercial success of Elden Ring. Already one of the best-reviewed games of 2022, Elden Ring feels like a culmination of FromSoft’s legendary SoulsBorne formula. Read IGN’s Elden Ring review here.
