Fans of Dark Souls should expect another game to be announced in due time, as From Software Research & Development boss Masanori Takeuchi has made known to Game Trailers that they’re not done with the franchise.
When asked by the site if From Software was through with Dark Souls, Takeuchi responded with passion: “Of course, it’s not over yet. We’ve always been enamored by dark fantasy action RPGs. That’s just been our core DNA and I think we’ll continue to utilize that,” he said.
Meanwhile, studio executive producer Eiichi Nakajima is hoping to appeal to a “global audience” with their next effort, but it wasn’t clear if said game would be Dark Souls or something new. He did say the key is to keep the core gamer happy, while adding elements that would appeal to a global crowd.
“We’ve always been about making games for the core gamer,” he said, “and they weren’t necessarily games that did well financially, which is too bad. The success of both Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls, which have each sold over a million [units] per title worldwide, has made us shift our thinking internally to not just core gamers, but to globalize our products, that they can be successful on a worldwide scale. That’s now one of the key pillars we consider when we develop games in the future.”
