Dark Souls III Could Be Final Souls Game

It's been a fun, if not difficult ride, but Dark Souls' creator Hidetaka Miyazaki is ready to conclude the Dark Souls series with Dark Souls III.

From Software’s Dark Souls series has risen to become a massive figure in the gaming industry, but its time in the limelight might be nearly over.

In a recent interview with GameSpot, Dark Souls creator Hidetaka Miyazaki said, “I don't think it'd be the right choice to continue indefinitely creating Souls and Bloodborne games. I'm considering Dark Souls III 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 III 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 III is an important marker in the evolution of From Software."

Our Take
Dark Souls fans are sure to be disappointed to hear that Dark Souls III could be the last entry in the series. However, I'm excited to hear that the studio wants to challenge itself and do new things. And fear not, whatever From Software works on next it's bound to feature many of the hallmarks that the studio is known for.
