It looks like fans might have to prepare to die, again in Dark Souls 3. From Software is rumored to be teaming up with Bandai Namco Entertainment again alongside famed director Hidetaka Miyazaki heading up the team. Previously Dark Souls 2 was only supervised by Miyazaki while he secretly worked on Bloodborne.
The rumor comes via VG247 who reportedly have a source who revealed that the title will be shown at E3 2015. No word on how the announcement will occur, but their source ‘guessed’ that it would take place during Sony’s conference which is set to take place Monday, June 15th. This is all the information that VG247 had on the matter.
This makes sense that Bandai Namco will be looking to put out a major release in 2016 for the new consoles and if you recall, back in February we reported of a trademark filing for Soldier’s Soul by the company which could potentially be the name of the spiritual sequel to the franchise.
Although it all seems very likely, everything should be taken with a grain of salt at this point until confirmations can be made. We have reached out to Bandai Namco Entertainment for comment on the rumors and will update this story if we receive a response.
