Now Playing: Is Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice More Difficult Than Dark Souls?

From Software president Hidetaka Miyazaki has revealed that the developer is currently working on two unannounced games. Whether both are sequels to existing series or the start to brand-new franchises has yet to be revealed.

Miyazaki made the announcement during an interview with 4Gamer.net, which was translated by Gematsu. "While it isn't the time to discuss details, they're both [From Software]-esque games," Miyazaki said. "We'll need a little more time, but we'll be able to tell everyone more about them once they take shape."

Back in June 2016, From Software revealed it had new games scheduled for the future. The first turned out to be Deracine with the second being the upcoming Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. Based on the phrasing for the new games, it's probably safe to assume the two unannounced titles are closer in length and scope to Sekiro as opposed to Deracine. Miyazaki added that both Dark Souls Remastered and Metal Wolf Chaos XD were not included in this original projection, and that the unannounced games are brand-new titles and not remasters.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is From Software's next game, coming to Xbox One, PS4, and PC on March 22. It's Matt Espineli's most anticipated game for 2019, largely for its setting and fast-paced mechanics. Sekiro leaves behind the medieval castles of Dark Souls III and Victorian catacombs of Bloodborne for steampunk feudal Japan. Combat is even faster than From Software's previous Soulsborne games, mimicking the challenging back and forth of the Tenchu franchise. For more information, here's everything we know.

I would be fascinated to see what kind of game they could produce that would be a departure from some of their recent titles. They possess an interesting creative team, would be cool to see them tackle a different genre.

Jokes on everyone. It’s actually 2 games fused into 1!

From Software decided they were sick and tired of hearing the phrase Soulsborne and in 1 monumentous decision thought it would be good to finally fuse the 2 franchises into 1 game!

SOULSBORNE the game due 2020!

-YEAH… NOT LIKELY, NINJA APPROVED-

Pretty sure one of those games is Armoured Core. He said it would be sci-fi. There is also an interview where he said a new Armoured Core was being made a few years ago.

The second game he described as "weird", so it's probably not Bloodborne. Doesn't matter since it's up to Sony whether or not we'll get another Bb. Sony is also capable of developing it themselves via Japan Studio since they own the IP.

I actually liked Enchanted Arms (also by FromSoftware) more than any of the Souls games I've tried (Demon and Dark), and would rather they do a spiritual successor to that instead of another artificially-difficult game. Another reason I can't trust mainstream videogame reviewers, fan or "professional."

@DukeGallison: Your comment sums up everything wrong with gamers these days, you think games are desinged just for you and no one else (like a child) and only your opinion matters.

Understand you do not like the Souls games, but it still does not change the FACT that the games are extremely well designed, fun and challenging with some of the greatest atmosphere designs in a game.

When you bring into question every reveiwer that gave the Souls games a highly positive review because it does not fit your opinion, you make yourself look like a little child.

These same reviewers also gave Enchanted Arms horrible reviews, I can see why so salty.

Plus this "Artificially Difficult" thing is seriously borderline moronic. Sorry to break this to you but games are Artificial by nature. Artificial world, characters, lore and difficulty, hence why their is a Easy, Normal and Hard difficulty.

The souls series lack of Difficulty choices makes it a more Adaptive Difficulty.

This game looks pretty junky compared to the Soulsborne series. It seems like it was just tossed together.
