Dark Souls 2 May Be Coming to the Next Generation


With the release of the long-awaited Dark Souls 2 right around the corner, many fans have been asking From Software to answer a very simple question: Will we be able to play Dark Souls 2 on the newest generation of consoles?

In a recent interview with Edge (via IGN), Dark Souls 2 co-director Yui Tanimura broke the silence on the issue offering fans a very ambiguous answer. “We have not put any thought into this yet”, stated the co-director, “so I unfortunately can’t answer at this point.”

While the prospect of a next generation version of Dark Souls 2 is still up in the air, the developer also stated the reasoning behind bringing the sequel to the PlayStation 3 and XBOX 360 elsewhere in the interview. “…we felt that there was still a lot of potential that remained unused in Dark Souls”, he said, “Our intention was to capitalise on the total potential of [seventh-generation] consoles and deliver the game to fans as soon as possible.”

So there you have it, Dark Souls 2 could come to the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in the future. Until then however, you can expect to see Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions launching in North America on March 11, 2014, with a PC release coming soon after.
