Yasuhiro Kitao, who works on promotion and communication at From Software, gave a rather wide time frame on his personal Twitter account.
More details to follow in the next 12 months. We hope you look forward to it! https://t.co/YvshapWDYl

In a similar Tweet in Japanese, he says “It’s still a while ahead, but we won’t make you wait for a year for the next report.” This means that more than “in a year” as the tweet in English reads, it’s more a matter of “within” a year. Still, the wait is probably going to be very long.
If the name Yasuhiro Kitao sounds familiar, it probably is. He used to work in the same role at Sony Interactive Entertainment Japan and Asia. After leaving the house of PlayStation in May, he moved on to From Software, with which he had worked extensively during the promotion of Bloodborne.
