From Software is working on two new games as part of its ambitious development strategy. And no, these mysterious projects don't include the upcoming Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice.
In an interview with Japanese game site 4Gamer (Thanks, Gematsu), From Software president Hidetaka Miyazaki confirmed From Software is still on the 3.5 development line he revealed in a previous interview back in June 2016. Currently From Software's products include:
- 0.5 – Deracine (PS VR)
- 1.0 – Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (PS4, Xbox One, PC)
- 2.0 – Unannounced Titles
Miyazaki is not leaving any room for misunderstandings here as he says the 2.0 games are full titles currently in development and that both are "[From Software]-esque." Miyazaki also clarified that he is not referring to either Dark Souls Remastered or Metal Wolf Chaos XD as both were requested by outside publishers and not part of From Software's internal 3.5 plans.
When people hear that a game is From Software-esque it's hard not to think of the "SoulsBorne games" comprising the Dark Souls and Bloodborne series. Fans have been clamoring for a sequel to Bloodborne especially after some recent easter eggs in From Software's VR game Deracine. Miyazaki has denied any intentional teases of Bloodborne 2, but anything is possible with these unannounced titles.
Sekiro is the next game by From Software and takes place in a dark fantasy, feudal Japan where players can jump and slash their way through demonic enemies. In our interview with Miyazaki he described it as a spiritual successor to Tenchu more than a Dark Souls game. Sekiro is slated for March 22 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
