FromSoftware president Hidetaka Miyazaki says a new, unannounced game is “in its final stages of production.” The president also confirms that new updates to the Elden Ring are being worked on.
This is evident from a recent interview by Hidetaka Miyazaki with the Japanese website 4 player† Miyazaki confirms a new game has yet to be announced, which is already “in the final stages of production”. It won’t say what type of game it is, or whether it’s a sequel to an existing title or a brand new IP, for example.
In the interview, Miyazaki also talks about the success of Elden Ring, saying that this success came as a big surprise to him and that he still doesn’t fully understand why. Miyazaki says development on Elden Ring is “ongoing,” but he hasn’t confirmed if DLC is on the way to the game. In any case, players can expect more updates.
Miyazaki says he wants to stay focused on directing games in the future, and confirms that he’s already working on his next game (somewhat different from the new game that’s almost finished). FromSoftware’s head has stated that he wants to “work towards more abstract fiction in the long run,” but what he means by that is unclear. I’m also not sure if this has anything to do with his new project.
Finally, Miyazaki reported that FromSoftware is working to treat its employees better, including by offering better compensation to younger employees and employees with less experience. Employees also have to work less overtime and deal with less ‘crisis’.
Anyway, FromSoftware is already busy recruiting new employees via Twitter, among other things, which could contribute to reducing the burden on existing employees.
