Bandai Namco might announce Dark Souls 3 at E3, according to a VG247 report citing a source familiar with the matter.
Long-time Dark Souls fans will be delighted to find out Hidetaka Miyazaki is once more at the helm, having skipped directing Dark Souls II to work on Bloodborne. The director created the original Dark Souls and Demon’s Souls, before moving on to a supervisory role for Dark Souls II.
Shuhei Yoshida confirmed an expansion for Bloodborne in May and contrary to what we may have thought, Bloodborne and new DLC doesn’t mean that FromSoft has completely forgotten about the Dark Souls franchise.
Whether or not Dark Souls 3 will be exclusive to one console has not been revealed, but hopefully it is not going to be so. Fans of the Souls series were pretty upset over the Bloodborne’s PlayStation 4 exclusivity. In the past, the Dark Souls games have been available across multiple platforms in the past and the exclusivity of Bloodborne should not impact the platforms Dark Souls is on.
The Souls series is known for its punishing difficulty , and are received with overwhelmingly positive reaction from both fans and the press .
E3 takes place in Los Angeles from June 16-18 . We will let you know more as soon as we get a hold on a confirmation from Bandai Namco’s part .
