We may not see another entry in the Nioh series for some time, as Team Ninja will begin full-scale development of other projects in 2021.

Speaking with Famitsu in the magazine's usual end-of-year creator interviews, as translated by Gematsu, Team Ninja's Fumihiko Yasuda confirmed that the development of the Nioh series will reach a "resting point" in 2021, and several other projects from the studio will go into full development next year.

Keywords for 2021: “Year of transition.”

Ambitions for 2021: “At Team Ninja, the seven years-long development of Nioh series will reach a resting point, and there are several projects that will begin full-scale development in 2021. I plan to change my development style to match my changing lifestyle and concentrate on new titles. As for me personally, I’ll try not to gain any more weight.”

Even though the series may have reached a resting point, the Nioh series isn't going away any time soon. In a little over a month, Koei Tecmo and Team Ninja will release The Nioh Collection on PlayStation 5 as well as the Nioh 2 Complete Edition on PC. The PlayStation 5 collection will include the two entries in the series completed with all DLC released so far as well as 4K resolution support and up to 120 FPS gameplay.

For everyone that recently purchased the PlayStation 5 console, you will be able to experience the complete Nioh 2 adventure in Nioh 2 Remastered – The Complete Edition, along with a remastered version of the first entry in the series: Nioh Remastered – The Complete Edition. If you would like all of this content in one convenient place, we have the perfect title for all of your Nioh needs. Get ready to relive the entire series with all DLC included for both titles in The Nioh Collection for PlayStation 5.

All of the titles available on PlayStation 5 will support 4K resolution for crystal clear visuals, up to 120 FPS gameplay for silky smooth combat, ultra-fast load times and the ability to transfer your data from the PS4 versions to pick up your journey right where you left off.
