Elden Ring creator still working on his “ideal fantasy RPG”

Published

The Elden Ring creator created one of the most beloved fantasy games of all time, but he says he’s still working on his ideal RPG, and that could be his next project.

With the imminent release of Elden Ring’s Shadow of the Erdtree DLC, fans are wondering what’s in store fromSoftware. Shadow of the Erdtree is supposed to be the game’s only expansion, so players will soon say goodbye to the Midlands.

Naturally, there is a lot of speculation about FromSoftware’s next project. Could it be Dark Souls 4, Bloodborne 2, Sekiro: Shadows Die Thrice? It could be something completely new, distinct from all previous franchises, while still building on what’s already been created.

Elden Ring creator Hidetaka Miyazaki has hinted at what his next project could be. In a June 15 interview with PC Gamer, he discussed his future plans and how Elden Ring is a step towards something bigger.

During the Elden Ring interviews, I think I mentioned that I’m still creating my ideal fantasy RPG,” Miyazaki said. “And while Elden Ring isn’t quite that, it’s pretty close. We’re getting closer.

It’s hard to say more without giving away spoilers about my next idea or our next games. But I think one thing that’s not necessarily missing, but that makes it difficult to achieve my ideal, is that when I play, I know everything that’s going to happen.

I already know everything that’s happening. So in terms of enjoying the game from a player’s perspective, I would like to not know that, and have someone else make my ideal fantasy game, please, if possible. So I could enjoy it just as a player.

Miyazaki’s statement confirms that FromSoftware is indeed working on another fantasy RPG, but the studio is large enough to accommodate multiple games, so Armored Core fans shouldn’t be too disappointed by this statement.

Whether the new game is Elden Ring 2, Dark Souls 4, or something entirely new, it’s exciting to think that a game as massive and impressive as Elden Ring still doesn’t fit Miyazaki’s vision of an ideal RPG . Once Shadow of the Erdtree is released, then the long wait for FromSoftware’s next project will begin.
