It has not been long since the last installment of Dark Souls came out, but the fans are already yearning for more information about the next part, Dark Souls 4. Its predecessor, The Dark Souls 3, was released early this year but the question that could be posed is whether the fourth part will be brought to light at all. If we take into consideration all of the announcements from the past, we will easily come to the conclusion that it is not going to happen. Upon its release, Bandai Namco’s officials stated that the Dark Souls 3 would be the last game in this series.
However, there have also been the viewpoints and rumors which claim the opposite. The president of Software, Hidetaka Miyazaki, said that the series will not see its end with the Dark Souls 3. In addition to this, he also pointed out that the studio should be careful with its decision if and when to release the next installment. Whatever they choose to do it will have a great effect not only on the franchise but the studio too.
Whether it is only to arouse curiosity or enthusiasm among the fans or there are some other hidden plans behind all of this, but Hidetaka has been giving many contradictory statements lately. At first, he claimed that the studio would move on while focusing on a completely new title, only to give quite the opposite statement afterward:
“As president of From Software, I’m not completely denying the possibility of bringing back the franchise (Dark Souls) in the future.”
Dark Souls 4 Release Date Not Available
However, taking everything into account, it is obvious that the next sequel will not come out to the surface anytime soon, but it is certain that the studio is preparing something for the fans.
If there is any news regarding the next installment, let’s hope that they will be out in the foreseeable future. Stay tuned!
