With all of the buzz surrounding EA and Bethesda’s E3 conferences, it is easy to forget that Kudokawa games (parent company of From Software and by extension the Dark Souls franchise) also held a press conference.
Hidetaka Miyazaki, lead director of the Dark Souls franchise confirmed three upcoming projects with Japanese gaming site 4gamer.

- For the second project, it could be a reboot but also a new game with ideas that came from their previous franchises.
- For the third project, he says it’s something different from what the company has been doing previously. He says it will be a bit weird.
Miyazaki later confirmed that the returning franchise would be a new Armored Core game:
But he did rule out fantasy + mech as one of the working titles.
