Update: Namco Bandai has confirmed to Eurogamer that Dark Souls II will be shipping in March 2014.
A large billboard has been spotted in Los Angeles by user Norm the Alligator ahead of next week’s Electronic Entertainment Expo. The 2014 launch window has lead to speculation that the next title in the notoriously unforgiving series may also include a next-generation console release.
A Namco Bandai Australia spokesperson declined to comment on the release date, and reiterated that only Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC versions of the game have been announced.
Namco recently confirmed the company will be going "guns blazing" to market with Dark Souls II.
