A few days ago Atlus PR Manager John Hardin mentioned on the PlatStation blog that he could “100% confirm there will NOT be a Demon’s Souls 2.” Yet, after a few hours he slightly changed tune, by saying that “it’s Sony’s call,” probably indicating that a future game might simply not be called “Demon’s Souls 2,” especially since Atlus just published Demon’s Souls, and doesn’t own the IP.
NeoGAF user DemonNite, that is pretty much known to be a Sony employee, even if his real identity is more protected than the gold of Fort Knox, already teased a PS4 exclusive “Souls spinoff” in the past, and today he mentioned that fans of the series will love it.
Whatever Miyazaki is doing, I’m sure all Souls fans will enjoy it. Me included ;D
For those that don’t know, Hidetaka Miyazaki was Demon’s Souls Lead Director.
In order to find out more about this mysterious project, we reached out to another source at Sony Computer Entertainment who wishes to remain anonymous, specifically to ask about the nature of the game as a possible “spinoff,” unfortunately he declined to comment on that, but he still admitted that the cogs are definitely spinning.
It will be worth the wait. Where there is smoke, there is fire.
Considering the popularity of the Demon’s Souls franchise, it’s very likely that the “fire” will turn into a full fledged explosion whenever the project will be revealed. Can we expect something at E3? We can only wait and see.
