From Software’s head Hidetaka Miyazaki cleared the water on what exactly did he mean that Dark Souls 3 will be the final episode. Revealing that instead it would be the turning point for the series to something different.
In a review with Miyazaki who’s now heading the development of the recently revealed Dark Souls 3 at E3, the CEO showed his intention to take the hardcore RPG franchise to new grounds and maybe a different time period than the medieval settings the Souls games are famous for.
“First of all, this is not the final product for the Dark Souls series. However, I believe it’s the turning point for the Dark Souls series. First of all, Dark Souls has a really unique worldview. It’s not a good idea, continuously releasing titles for this series because of that factor. And this will probably be the turning point of From Software as a whole – it’s the last project we started working on before I became president. It’s basically From Software, they started working on this project when it was an older generation. So it’s a turning point. It’ll be a turning point, but it’s not final.”
Dark Souls 3 is coming next year for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Watch the E3 trailer in case you missed it:
