FromSoftware

  • The developer of Dark Souls FromSoftware apparently has two games in the works but has yet to reveal what they are.
  • According to Hidetaka Miyazki the studio president in an interview with 4Gamer.net (via Gematsu) there are two titles in production which he describes as  “[From Software]-esque games” but is apparently no where near ready to tell the public about it.
  • Miyazaki also made a comment about the recent Bloodborne Easter Egg found in their VR title Déraciné. While speculation was at an all time high of a Bloodborne sequel, Miyazaki says it was simply there because “I, as well as several staff, like the title Bloodborne…” and calls it “pure mischief“. While this might put a damper on a possible Bloodborne 2, there might still be some hope in future if this is not one of the current titles in production.
