During a recent interview with IGN, From Software president Hidetaka Miyazaki revealed that his studio is currently working on three new games, and that one of them is a new Armored Core title.
“So there are several titles that we are currently working on […] Some of those are dark fantasy, some of those could be a mech [game] – that’s one thing,” Miyazaki told IGN at Tokyo Game Show 2016. “The second thing is that one of the new titles I’ve been working on will probably comply with the expectations from the fans in straightforward manner.”
“The last thing is that another title will probably be a little bit weird. When we actually announce the title, probably fans will react with ‘oh, what the hell is this very weird game that Miyazaki has created?'”
When asked to share more about the ‘weird’ game, Miyazaki said: “So when I say weird, I mean that the genre we’re trying to try might be a little bit weird. Not only that, but all the other actual game content might be a little bit weird, yes.”
And when pressed on whether one of three games would be a new Armored Core title, Miyazaki replied, “Yeah, we’re already working on Armored Core”, but didn’t share any additional detail.
Miyazaki also said that there are still several obstacles they’ll need to overcome to launch these new titles, so they’re not sure how many more years it’ll take to make them, but they’re looking forward to making a future announcement.
