Hidetaka Miyazaki Says He Would Like One More Dark Souls Game Before Retiring
Hidetaka Miyazaki is the President of FromSoftware and director of Dark Souls 3. Dark Souls games were one of the most successful games developed by FromSoftware. After the most recent installment, people thought that this is the end for Dark Souls series. But Hidetaka Miyazaki says he would like one more Dark Souls game before retiring.
In a recent interview with GameSpot, Miyazaki said:
“This game marks a major “turning point” within the Dark Souls series. Just as it’s been announced, we have two DLCs planned, but as it stands now, I’m not thinking about making any sequels or spin-offs. That applies to Bloodborne as well. I keep referring to the series as a “turning point,” and I’m avoiding use of the word “finish,” since saying it would completely “finish” the series. If someone says they want to make a Dark Souls game using the latest in technology, and if it is sufficiently attractive, then it wouldn’t be fair for me to just finish the series.”
The original Dark Souls game was released in 2011. And few months ago, Dark Souls 3 was released. Since the release of Dark Souls 3, much time hasn’t passed. But still, according to Miyazaki’s statements, it looks like FromSoftware is going to be working on something new and fresh.
Miyazaki further said:
“To add, I can’t deny the fact that, maybe down the line, I want to go back to the series and make one more game before I retire. I don’t want to be branded a liar if that happens [chuckles].”
Looks like Miyazaki is in mood for another Dark Souls game. And we all hope that we see something good from FromSoftware in future.
