Armored Core 6 Has A September-October Release Window

The plan is to get the game out before the Shadow of the Erdtree expansion.

Story Highlights 

  • Unless further delayed, FromSoftware has currently planned a September-October release window for Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon.
  • There are more chances for the title to drop by the end of September.
  • It’s been further revealed that the recently announced Shadow of the Erdtree expansion will launch after Armored Core 6’s release.

Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon was announced late last year with little further information to go by, not to mention radio silence on the game’s release date. The mech combat title was showcased, however, with a quality cinematic trailer where FromSoftware confirmed that a sixth installment in the series is indeed coming. 

Sources have now revealed that the developers have planned a release window that falls between September and October for Armored Core 6. Unless further internally delayed, there are more chances for the title to launch in late September rather than getting pushed to sometime in October.

Additionally, it was disclosed to me that FromSoftware wants to get Armored Core 6 out before releasing the Shadow of the Erdtree expansion for Elden Ring.

A resurrection of the Armored Core franchise has been long coming. The industry hasn’t seen a new Armored Core game in a fairly long while, with the last rendition in the series dating back to 2012 and releasing for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. 

This past The Game Awards occasion, however, has turned out to be an utter delight for Armored Core enthusiasts. FromSoftware revealed Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon in typical menacing fashion, thereby rekindling this lost flame for fans of the series.

Sitting down in an interview with IGN, gaming industry mogul and Japanese developer Hidetaka Miyazaki spoke out and confirmed that the upcoming Armored Core title will be close to what the series stands for.

Contrary to popular belief, the fundaments of other FromSoftware front-runners, namely the Dark Souls games, Bloodborne, Sekiro, or Elden Ring, will not be influencing Armored Core 6’s gameplay to that degree.

No, we’ve not been making a conscious effort to try to direct it towards more Soulsborne type gameplay,” said Miyazaki. 

The Armored Core franchise itself comprises five mainline games and is consecutively set in a post-apocalyptic world. Players take control of weaponized combat robots called “Armored Cores” which are made to fight against each other or robot units from other factions.

Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon will launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.
