What are you expecting to see from Fromsoftware this year?

So this might me a little bit early seeing as how we recently got Sekiro but I feel like FROM has more in store for this year.

I have no clue if Sekiro DLC was contractually obligated and if we're ever gonna see it but if we do I hope it's Tomoe DLC.

Now what I'm personally expecting is them revealing a wholly new game, Sekiro wasn't the only thing they were working on and we know it as a fact, being hopefully I see it revealed at E3, if not then by the end of the year for sure.

What I know won't happen is BB2, I'm sure it still doesn't exist even as a concept.

So what do you think FROM has in store for us this year? Think any of the ASOIAF rumors are true, are we getting knights again? We know FROM are doing another game closer to DS so might that be it? Maybe a new Armored Core finally? Miyazaki himself mentioned they are working on a dark ARPG, a re imagining and a weird game.

My pick is gonna be the dark ARPG for this year.

Chromehounds 2 or Chromehounds mixed with Bloodborne. Bloodhounds.

Honestly, Armored Core. They keep talking about one being in production.

A new game that isn't a Souls style game would be nice. Armored Core or a new IP

Bloodborne 2 or Dark Souls 4.
I'll probably not gonna touch again Sekiro after the platinum, so I don't care about DLC or sequels.

I’d really like to see a Bloodborne 2 but I feel like that is a PS5 thing. Dark Souls 4 would also be great, but I’ll take anything tbh.
I don’t believe in the George RR Martin rumor.

Nothing, maybe there will be sekiro dlc and/or a sequel announcement but I think it's too soon for anything else.

I could see them teasing their next project at E3 or TGS, along with announcing the inevitable Sekiro DLC for the Fall.

Sekiro dlc. I doubt they will even show anything else, let alone have a release date for a new game.

Don't think we will see the 3 punch dark 2 bloodborne and dark 3 again. I think wanting to get out of the Bandai namco contract is why we saw dark 3 so soon after 2

I mean as far back as 2016 we heard Miyazaki mention a game that "is a dark fantasy action RPG that with a setting/feeling similar but different to DARK SOULS."
https://www.4gamer.net/games/305/G030528/20160526060/

I did some digging a while ago and saw two artists on Artstation that previously worked on Dark Souls III mentioning they've also worked on a TBA title for FROM.

None of them are credited in either Sekiro or Déraciné as far as I could tell (Please correct me if I'm wrong here).

Marcos Domenech https://www.artstation.com/marcos_domenech/profile Contract work until 2017.
3D Senior Artist Environments and props
" Working in a new exciting Project "

Daniel Santos https://www.artstation.com/danvonp/profile
FROM SOFTWARE 2014-2018
Senior Character Artist
- Dark Souls 3
- TBA title

Both of these artists has done some exceptional work that ended up in the final product. My guess is that their sticking to their strengths with Dark Fantasy and it will have a very similar aesthetic to Dark Souls but play differently. I also think it's pretty far along and we might see an early 2020 release for it.

It's always fun to speculate and It could turn out to be something completely different.

Omnipotent is an insider who keeps saying it's not a thing. So him posting before you is what made it funny for me.
Didn’t bruceleeroy come out recently and say bloodborne 2 is indeed happening? He was one of the first people to even mention project beast/bloodborne.

The obligatory Sekiro DLC and maybe an Armored Core announcement.

I'm happy for them to do other things because I'm only just finishing up with the Ringed City DLC in DS3, so I'll probably give Sekiro a bit of breathing room before I jump into that.

I absolutely want Sekiro DLC and I hope that’s this year. I wouldn’t expect anything else any time soon.

All I'm expecting is Sekiro DLC announcement, but I'd be thrilled to see a glimpse of their next project as well.

I wish they'd just confirm Sekiro DLC, no need for a fancy trailer for now, just say "hey guys, it's coming!", and I'd be happy.

With this being the first game they actually own in a while, we can never be 100% sure if there will be DLC. The publisher can ask and they can just say "nope, not feeling it" if it wasn't part of the original contract.

Yeah that's what I feel is what's getting announced this year. The question is when?
Honestly I think it heavily depends on the publisher. If this is a Sony exclusive thing, then it's showing up at a Sony event (State of play, presser etc.). If it's a multiplat which is the rumor then it can show up anywhere and I wouldn't be shocked if it got it's reveal during MS presser at E3 or later in the summer at Gamescom.

I hope the Grrm stuff is true. After Sekiro showed us they don’t need a dark souls style game to make an excellent game, I’m excited for anything they come up with. They’re pretty much my #1 developer right now

Did he? I didn’t see any posts but would like to see them. Surely the studio can work on more than one game, though.
I love that image you posted lol.
I'll try and search for them for you, yeah someone posted that in the other thread and I couldn't stop laughing.

According to Omni it's not a thing at all at FROM.
