Dark Souls III Could Mark The End Of The Souls Series


Developer From Software has some devastating news for Souls fans, as they have revealed that next year’s Dark Souls III could end up being the series’ last.

The game’s director Hidetaka Miyazaki spoke with GameSpot and said the following:

“I don’t think it’d be the right choice to continue indefinitely creating Souls and Bloodborne games. I’m considering Dark Souls 3 to be the big closure on the series. That’s not just limited to me, but From Software and myself together want to aggressively make new things in the future. Dark Souls 3 will mark the last game where the development project began before I became president. The next title will be a game that was conceived while I was president. I believe that From Software has to create new things. There will be new types of games coming from us, and Dark Souls 3 is an important marker in the evolution of From Software.”

While it sucks that the Souls series definitely seems like it is coming to an end, I gotta respect the creators decision to end it. There are plenty of other big series out there that started off great and then completely overstayed their welcome (coughAssassin’sCreedcoughCallOfDutycough), and I would much rather the series go out on a high note than eventually become something that people annually shrug at.
