Demon’s Souls Director Appointed President of From Software

by on May 21, 2014 5:27 AM 13

Kadokawa announced today with a press release that following the acquisition of From Software by the group, the executive team of the development studio has undergone several changes.

The most interesting within the list of new positions is the appointment of Demon’s Souls and Dark Souls Game Director Hidetaka Miyazaki as the new President of the studio. Additionally, Demon’s Souls Producer Masanori Takeuchi has been placed on the Senior Managing Director seat.

The press release did not specify whether Miyazaki-san will continue his work as game director on the side of his new executive position or not, but considering his track record and the rumors that place him at the helm of development of the PS4 exclusive codenamed Project Beast we can definitely hope that he will.

    So next Souls exclusive to PS4 since he really loves sony ?

      If there is an overwhelming case financially for Souls to go PS4 exclusive, probably yes. However, if Project Beast turns out to be true (which it probably is), the chances of that may be greatly diminished.

        Beast Souls will be multiplatform as it should as PC >>> PoS4.

          Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeah…… Not if SONY are funding it. This is a Demon’s Souls situation if true, not a Dark Souls one. Troll harder you f***ing moron, and try thinking before you type next time.

        The same guy that leaked Project Beast and said that it will be a PS4 exclusive is the same guy that leaked the driveclub delay a month before the announcement. There are also a few other leaks he has been spot on.

          Well, this is good then. I was talking more about something along the lines of Dark Souls 3 having PS4 exclusivity and, in the even that Project Beast is SONY funded, the unlikelyhood of that happening. The guy is reliable though like you said, so hopefully E3 will be an epic full-on reveal and the baaaarsterds won’t make us wait until TGS….
