Dark Souls Developer has 3 games planned

Hidetaka Miyazaki has offered a few teasers on three games being planned by FromSoftware.

FromSoftware announced in an interview that it has three games in the works. In addition, Bloodborne might possibly be getting a new release, according to Hidetaka Miyazaki, game director of the company. 

In the interview, Miyazaki stated they were planning three new games for development, and one of them would be a dark-fantasy -- very reminiscent of Dark Souls -- but taken from a different angle. With Bloodborne's overall glowing reviews, many gamers believe this might be a subtle hint for a second installment in the franchise. A new game should prove to be a good move for company, especially considering the amazing response to the first. But this is only speculation for the time being.

The second game in the pipeline might be a reboot, but it also might be a new game with concepts taken from previous franchises - they really are being vague. Some gamers believe this might be a teaser for Armored Core as Miyazaki has always showed an interest in mecha-type games. However he did rule out fantasy and mecha-type games for the three titles -- so at this point it's also just speculation.

Please, oh please, oh please, oh please!

The final game was said to be a 'bit weird' and will be something the company has never tried before. This is always promising in companies, although it might fall flat. Trying new things and pushing boundaries has never been a fruitless endeavor.

For the time being very little is known about the three games, but they look promising, and give us something to look forward to.

    I cannot possibly hope harder that whatever the dark fantasy game is, it isn't another Bloodborne. One was enough. One was probably too many.

    With all due respect, you are insane. Bloodborne is the best game currently available for PS4 and it is not close

    I noted that Bloodborne has an overwhelmingly positive reception (I fixed my article please note XD) May I ask why didn't you enjoy the game? I've heard some complaints down the grape-vine but nothing too terrible.

    I loved the game, but it's easy to see why someone wouldn't. For one, Bloodborne had far less replayability than it's sister game series, Dark Souls. Bloodborne doesn't have a lot of visual variation, particularly when it comes to weapons and armor sets. Not only that, but a lot of the game's content was locked behind Chalice Dungeons, which was easily the weakest part of the game. These Chalice Dungeons were like procedurally generated maze-like nightmare that -- dare I say it -- suffer from more predictability and a bigger lack of variety than Skyrim's dungeons. Compared to the rest of Bloodborne, the Chalice Dungeons were simply not fun to explore. At all. (Allbeit, the later levels provided a decent challenge.) Oh and let's not forget that Bloodborne has hands down the worst PvP system in the entire series. It's a shame, really.

    However, I think Bloodborne has an amazing story that easily rivals if not outdoes it's sister series, Dark Souls. While the game may not be nearly as replayable (partly due to how short it is and partly due to the overabundance of dark environments), it's variety in weapon movesets outclasses Dark Souls, which can make for a fun few playthroughs just trying out all the different options. Also, the PvE combat is exhilarating once you learn its ins and outs. It really is an incredible game, even with it's glaring flaws.

    Bloodborne was amazing, it was very well received and currently has over a 90 metacritic score...so...yea, idk why you think it was poorly received

    For some reason when I thought Bloodborne I thought Order of 1886 XD. Sorry about that - I edited the article. Thanks for pointing it out :D

    O0o that makes so much more sense lol btw you still have the sentence 'A new game might prove to be a good move, despite the player reaction to the first.' in your post. I would switch that sentence up because you said the game had glowing reviews the sentence before and it might confuse some readers. Just a tip! Thank you for clarifying
