FromSoftware’s next game is in the “final stages of development”

FromSoftware is wrapping up its next game, which is apparently already close to the end of development.

In an interview with Japanese gaming site 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 in 2018 around the launch of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice how FromSoftware’s two unannounced games were shaping up. An unannounced game was going to become Elden Ring, but that other unannounced game is still in the works and, according to Miyazaki, “development is currently in the final stages.”

No word on what that game might be, but one of the most hyped leaks around FromSoftware suggests the studio is working on a new game Armored Core, the company’s mechanical combat simulator.

Miyazaki himself revealed that he was already working on another game as director, intending to work “on a more abstract fantasy than anything we’ve done in the past.”

The interview ends with Miyazaki sharing that with these new titles, more updates for Elden Ring are in the works. Given that each of the past Souls games like Dark Souls and Bloodborne have received quite significant DLC campaigns, we can probably expect the same for Elden Ring.

FromSoftware does not waver after the critical and commercial success of Elden Ring. Already one of the highest-rated games of 2022, Elden Ring feels like the culmination of FromSoft’s legendary SoulsBorne formula. Read IGN’s Elden Ring review here.
