Dark Souls 3 Announcement Rumored To Be Coming at E3
Rumors suggest that a Dark Souls 3 announcement might be coming at E3 2015 later this month. Dark Souls and Bloodborne director Hidetaka Miyazaki is once again leading the team.
Miyazaki, the father of the Souls series moved into a supervisory role for Dark Souls 2, with Tomohiro Shibuya and Yui Tanimura co-directing the sequel. Thankfully Dark Souls 3 will see the return of the visionary creator on the director’s role.
It is unknown during which conference the announcement will be made, but sources indicate that it might be during Sony’s E3 press conference on Monday, June 15. Given From Software’s recent collaboration with Sony on Bloodborne and the huge success that followed, it should be expected that the reveal would be during Sony’s briefing.
Dark Souls 2 gathered high praise from both critics and fans, even gaining a slightly higher Metacritic score than the original, although some hardcore fans were a bit disappointed on the slightly lower difficulty of the sequel compared to that of its predecessor.
Sony boss Shuhei Yoshida confirmed recently that a Bloodborne expansion is coming and promised more details to be revealed “later this year”.
Sony’s E3 2015 Press Conference, which will be held at 6:30 PM PDT on Monday, June 15. The event itself will take place at the L.A. Memorial Sports Arena in Los Angeles.
Sony did not reveal any more details, but there will surely be a ton of announcements and some very exciting surprises. While No Man’s Sky and Tearaway: Unfolded are two titles known to be making an appearance, other projects are likely to share the spotlight.
A new Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End gameplay footage is likely to be shown, which will demonstrate what Naughty Dog has achieved since the PlayStation Experience, where the incredible gameplay demo wowed the audience. Guerilla’s open world RPG is probably going to be revealed with hopefully some beautiful gameplay, and we might get a teaser of Sucker Punch‘ new title. We can hope for a PS4 God of War announcement as well.
Insomniac will give us a glimpse of the Ratchet & Clank reboot title for the PS4, which is a re-imagining of the franchise set to release alongside the movie in 2016. We will likely get a better look at Project Morpheus, along with a few VR optimised titles, and probably a release date for the device.
The new title from Quantic Dream should most definitely be revealed, which will surely be something to look forward to, as their Dark Sorcerer demo at E3 2013 was truly something spectacular and demonstrated the potential of the PlayStation 4 hardware in the capable hands of the Quantic Dream studio, led by the visionary David Cage.
