E3 2015: Dark Souls III Officially Announced The director of the original Dark Souls is returning to the franchise. 06.15.15 - 5:28 PM
We previously reported that Dark Souls III might be in the works, and today's Microsoft press conference confirmed it. Bandai Namco officially announced that Dark Souls III will be making its way to PlayStation 4, XBox One, and PC, and will be releasing in early 2016.
Chris Gilbert, the Senior VP of Sales and Marketing for Bandai Namco, had this to say: “The Dark Souls series has built a revered reputation placing it in the highest echelon of revered video game properties of all time. We are very excited to see Hidetaka Miyazaki and his talented team at From Software working on Dark Souls III.” It looks as though Miyazaki, who skipped on directing Dark Souls II so he could work on Bloodborne, is indeed returning to the franchise, which is exciting!
