Hidetaka Miyazaki Wants To Work On His Debut Franchise After Elden Ring DLC

He would only step in to develop it after he is completely done with the Shadow of the Erdtree.

Story Highlights

  • Hidetaka Miyazaki has said in an interview that he wants to return to the Armored Core series.
  • He would only start working on a new Armored Core game after finishing the Elden Ring DLC.
  • The dev also talked about the future plans of FromSoftware and briefly addressed the Bloodborne IP.

In an interview with IGN Japan, Hidetaka Miyazaki, the director of Elden Ring, said he wants to return to the franchise that started it all for him after Shadow of the Erdtree. He is talking about the beloved Armored Core series. Armored Core: Last Raven was the first game he got to work on. So, he wants to continue the franchise after he is completely done with the anticipated Elden Ring DLC.  

‘ARMORED CORE’ is very important to FromSoftware. I have a strong will to continue to make it in the future. I think ‘ARMORED CORE VI’ was a success. On the other hand, not everything was perfect, and there is still room for improvement, so I am determined not to stop there. However, nothing specific has been decided yet,” said the director. [Machine-translated].

He acknowledges that the previous entry was quite successful despite not everything being perfect. So, we’ll likely see massive improvements in Armored Core 7.

Hidetaka Miyazaki Also Talks About The Bloodborne IP

The director was asked about whether a Bloodborne sequel would ever come out. He could not answer since FromSoftware is not the one to decide here—Sony is. Hidetaka also claims that Bloodborne is a special title to him that he holds dear, and he appreciates the enthusiasm of all the players.

Unfortunately, I don’t have much to say about Bloodborne. I’ve answered this question in another interview, but I can’t answer that because it’s basically not an IP that we can manage. […] I’m very sorry, but I don’t have anything to say from FromSoftware here.”
