Dark Souls sequel to bring the series to a wider audience
Not only has From Software confirmed that they are developing a sequel to Darks Souls but they are hoping to extend the series' fanbase with the next game too.
R&D boss for the studio, Masanori Takeuchi has made it clear that they are working on the next game in the series saying, "Of course, it's not over yet. We've always been enamoured by dark fantasy action RPGs. That's just been our core DNA and I think we'll continue to utilise that."
Executive producer, Eiichi Nakajima added that they are hoping to open up the series to many more gamers. He said, "We've always been about making games for the core gamer, and they weren't necessarily games that did well financially, which is too bad."
"The success of both Demon's Souls and Dark Souls, which have each sold over a million [units] per title worldwide, has made us shift our thinking internally to not just core gamers, but to globalise our products, that they can be successful on a worldwide scale. That's now one of the key pillars we consider when we develop games in the future," Nakajima continued.
