Dark Souls Director Becomes President of From Software.
As previously reported, From Software was acquired by Japanese publisher Kadokawa (Lollipop Chainsaw) back in April of 2014. This acquisition was likely the result of the tremendous success the ‘Souls’ series as seen in recent years.
Today it was revealed in an official press release that From Software would be undergoing managerial changes, and that Dark Souls director Hidetaka Miyazaki will step into a new position as the studio’s president.
It hasn’t been made public how Miyazaki’s promotion will affect the future of his direct input on game design.
Miyazaki isn’t the only member of From Software receiving a promotion; Demon’s Souls producer Masanori Takeuchi has been promoted to senior managing director.
This news bodes well for the future of From Software and the Souls series in general, and it will be exciting to see what new developments and projects come down the pipeline with Miyazaki at the helm.
