Obviously, with all translations there’s room for error but the message for Dark Souls seems clear with Miyazaki saying, “there’s absolutely no plan right now for any sequels, spin-offs or tie-ins. What is certain for now is, to me personally, Dark Souls is over. So rather than make another sequel, I think it’s time we take a step to a new direction. Development of a new IP has already begun”.
No idea what that new game is yet (rumour has it Miyazaki really wants to make a more ordinary and linear story-based thing for change). And, while he seems pretty set on no follow ups for the time being, there’s still just a hint of life for the series: “I can’t say for certain the possibility is 0%”.
However, any new game in the series will likely be handled by someone else. “If a FROM Software developer came to me five years from now and begged ‘please let me make another Dark Souls‘. Then I will not rule out the possibility to let my subordinates start a new project”.
It’s not completely over just yet either, with the first DLC due in Fall and a second one now dated for ‘early 2017’.
