Dark Souls Franchise Is “Done For Now” According to Director Hidetaka Miyazaki

Dark Souls

With the recent release of Dark Souls III: The Ringed City, fans received what is now being touted as the last addition to the Dark Souls franchise for a great, long while. According to an interview with director Hidetaka Miyazaki, the Dark Souls franchise will not be continued in the foreseeable future. You can now savor your precious controllers from being destroyed in fits of rage against the insanely difficult game reputation.

The reveal that Dark Souls has met its end for the time being came from an interview on Japanese blog Esuteru, as Miyazaki revealed that no further plans for the franchise have been created. With the announcement that Dark Souls III would be the last full game for the time being, it is important to note that the From Software president has admitted that he does feel that there are incomplete aspects of the title. With this admittance, this does leave a small crack in the door to hope that in the future, there will be more installments coming to fill in those incomplete aspects that may be nagging at fans from the previous installments of the game.

While this means that fans of Dark Souls franchise will have an indefinite hiatus on their hands, fans should take comfort that From Software does have plans on filling the void sometime soon. In a previous interview with GNN Gamer, Miyazaki has expressed the game developer’s intentions on trying out a new IP for gamers to enjoy. While that bit of information is scant at best, it still brings comfort to know that the game developers are onto something new while they take a long break from the Dark Souls realm.
