It looks like From Software is content with squeezing Dark Souls 2 into the tail-end of this generation, and despite next-gen announcements, have no plans on offering the game on the PS4 or Next Xbox. If so, it would’ve taken them a lot longer to get the game out, explains Yui Tanmiura in a recent interview.
Right now there’s no intent to have Dark Souls on Next-Gen
Speaking with CVG, “We wanted to deliver something to fans as soon as possible,” the developer explains. “We still feel there’s potential and ability for us to express a little bit more than what we did with Dark Souls, even on current-gen consoles. We hope to stay on current console, but express a little bit more, and elaborate on what we were able to communicate with Dark Souls… Right now there’s no intent to have Dark Souls on next-gen.”
