The Bloodborne team is not responsible for Dark Souls 3.
Dark Souls 3 caught us by surprise. Oh, not the inevitable sequel, but word that Hidetaka Miyazaki would be leading the project. Surely it follows a bit too closely on Bloodborne’s heels…?
As it turns out out, Miyazaki worked on both Bloodborne and Dark Souls 3 simultaneously, but the rest of the Dark Souls 3 development team didn’t.
Speaking to VideoGamer, Miyazaki confirmed that Dark Souls 3 has been in the works for two years with a separate team.
“None of the Bloodborne team members joined the Dark Souls 3 development team,” he said.
This isn’t super surprising; FromSoftware is a big studio, and more than capable of fronting multiple teams. Moreover, Bloodborne was developed in collaboration with SCE Studio Japan.
Dark Souls 3 is coming to PC, PS4 and Xbox One in early 2016.
