Dark Souls 3 (opens in new tab) takes place during an apocalypse, but it’s not just the fictional world that’s coming to an end – DS3 director, father of the Souls series, and current From Software president Hidetaka Miyazaki told (opens in new tab) GameSpot that it also represents closure for the Souls series as a whole.
“I don’t think it’d be the right choice to continue indefinitely creating Souls and Bloodborne (opens in new tab) games. I’m considering Dark Souls 3 to be the big closure on the series,” he said. It doesn’t sound like he’s alone in that thinking either. “That’s not just limited to me, but From Software and myself together want to aggressively make new things in the future.”
I was never a big fan of the Souls games myself, but I absolutely loved Bloodborne – it was the first game I ever achieved a Platinum trophy on, and I’m eagerly awaiting the Old Hunters DLC (opens in new tab). It kind of bums me out that it sounds like we won’t be getting more, but considering how many games have aped the designs of From Software’s games lately, I’m sure they’ll go on to create something just as good.
