From Software Have TWO Unannounced Games In Developmenton January 3, 2019 by Reuben Mount
We’re huge fans of the challenge and pacing of the modern From Software games, having pretty much consumed all of the Souls franchise and Bloodborne. So, not only are we looking forward to their next title, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, but are very excited for what is to come from the studio in the future.
Speaking in a recent interview with 4Gamer (via Gematsu), studio president Hidetaka Miyazaki revealed that From Software have two unannounced games currently in development, teasing further that both of these are “[From Software]-esque,” adding the studio needs “a little more time” before it discusses any further details.
As we stated earlier, we know the studio’s next release will be Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, which comes to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on March 22. This is going to be published by Activision, taking the player back to a fantastical reimagining of 1500s Japan during the Sengoku period. We’ve thrown the trailer below in case you have missed this game until now, so give it a watch and join us in our excitement about it.
During the interview, Miyazaki also commented on the multiple Bloodborne Easter Eggs that players have found in From Software’s recent VR title, Déraciné. Despite internet theories that the Easter Egg points to confirmation of a Bloodborne sequel, Miyazaki said it was added simply because he and several other staff members are fans of the game.
We are bucking the trend a little here, but we hope that neither of these two unannounced titles are a sequel to Bloodborne. We thought that the narrative in the game tied off so neatly, and without a cyclical plot device like the Undead Curse in Dark Souls, there is little reason to continue a journey in Yharnam. This being said, we’re not averse to a spiritual sequel dealing with similar themes set in a different location, alike the jump between Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls.
