Elden Ring only launched a few short months ago, but it's looking like developer FromSoftware is well on the way to launching its next game. The studio's director, Hidetaka Miyazaki, recently spoke with Japanese outlet 4Gamer about some upcoming projects. One mystery title at the studio seems further along than expected.
Discussion on this particular project stems from a previous 2018 interview where the Elden Ring director spoke about multiple titles being in the works at the studio. This new interview brought up those previous discussions, with Miyazaki responding about one particular game, saying "Yes, it is. We are in the final stages of development."
Now that Elden Ring is out there in the wild, it's safe to assume the majority of the team will have pivoted to working on this one then. We're not sure what it is, whether it's a sequel in another FromSoftware series like Dark Souls or not, but we should find out soon enough.
Elden Ring itself has gone on to become a massive success for the Japanese developer. The game sold more than 13 million copies in just over a month, which is a mighty impressive feat even with all the hype behind the title.
Has Elden Ring turned you into a FromSoft fan? Looking forward to their next effort? Let us know below!

Light Souls: A New Beginning 🤪
Dark Souls remake you watch
I loved Elden Ring, but only because completion was made attainable through the "call in help" feature that allowed us to pull in other gamers to help nail a boss. I just hope whatever they do next has that same functionality. I wouldn't have made it through ER without it. GotY for me that was.
If its not open world like elden ring then it will fail in comparison. It will be hard to going back to linear after elden rings success, just like zelda BoTW any new zelda will fail in sales if it doesn't keep the same formula
I suspect the next From game will fail comparably in sales next to Elden Ring just because a lot of Elden's sales were hype-driven to a new market that had no idea what From sold, and people learned very quickly that From game's aren't for them.
What remains to be seen is how many are like me that knows it's not for me but still bought all of them hoping it would eventually click, even if it never does, lol. (Well I haven't bought Elden yet, that can wait for steep sales.)
@NEStalgia I don't know if you are new to the Souls Universe or an OG player like myself who has been playing their titles since Demon Souls. Their titles have never failed from a sales perspective. Fromsoft have always broken the mould as a company their main objective is to make a game they want to make and they don't worry about sales as much as other commercial companies. Yes, of course they need the cash to keep funding future projects but its never a decision that influences what they want to do next. (See latest interview with Miyazaki if you want clarification. What made ER so successful was the influx on new gamers who probably never played a souls game in their live and saw "open world". Sorry to say but you seem a bit ill informed and haven't been doing your research. I don't know what count as steep sales but ER has sold 13.4m copies. Even past titles have been very successful. DS 10m, Other titles couple of million each. All that will happen with the next game is the OG Souls players will keep buying and supporting their games as they have always do. The hype may not be there that its not open world ER2 but it will still prove a big hit with the fans. I enjoyed ER but felt it was too big and I prefer the smaller dungeon crawlers like in the Souls series and in BB... Also they dumbed down the difficulty in ER significantly. The high platinum achievement rate shows.
We'll see how that goes.
After all, we saw how bad a state Dark Souls 2 released in when B team took over and A team was working on Bloodborne.
More..more..MORE!! Greatest game of all time for me (in the moment), on my second playthrough and love getting lost in the world. Don't get me wrong I love plenty of other games & there are many greats of all time but man has this one been sticking with me.
Kings field 5 please
