While FromSoftware just struck gold with the release of Elden Ring this year, it seems the studio’s next game is not far off from release, as the studio’s president Hidetaka Miyazaki has confirmed that an unannounced FromSoftware new game is in the final stages of development!
Speaking to Japanese gaming site 4Gamer, Miyazaki was asked about some of the unannounced titles the studio was working on.
4Gamer: At the time of the interview with “SEKIRO” in 2018, it was said that 3.5 lines were in operation in-house at that time, and two of them were unpublished ( related article ). One of the unpublished ones was “ELDEN RING”, but is the other one still under development?
Miyazaki: Yes. Development is also in the final stages.
In the same interview, Miyazaki confirmed that the next game he is directing is “already in motion,” though he wouldn’t give more specifics about it.
4Gamer: Please tell us about your goals as a director. One culmination of “ELDEN RING” has been completed. Is there anything you would like to do or are interested in in the future?
Mr. Miyazaki: As a director, the next title is already in motion, so I’d like to avoid spoilers there …
In the medium to long term, I would like to work on a fantasy with a higher degree of abstraction than past works.
Over on Twitter, the studio announced that it is recruiting staff for a wide range of roles for “multiple new projects.”

Here’s the tweet translated:
We have started recruiting staff for a wide range of occupations for multiple new projects. We look forward to working with you on making games with FromSoftware. Please check the special site if you like
Given the studio’s last few releases, whatever this new FromSoftware game is, it’s something to look forward to for sure. Hopefully, we’ll get an announcement soon.
