At this year’s Game Developers Conference, From Software’s Masanori Takeuchi and Eiichi Nakajima recently spoke about their future plans. When asked if Dark Souls would be the last game of the series, Takeuchi exclaimed, “Of course, it's not over yet. You have to go back to our roots, which is King's Field. We've made many games in that series. We've always been enamored by dark fantasy action RPGs. That's just been our core DNA and I think we'll continue to utilize that."
Not surprisingly, the creators of Dark Souls like to be challenged and they insert these challenges into their developmental process. “We know what butters our bread, obviously it's consumer games,” Takeuchi stated. "That's where we see some of our key strengths. That being said, as developers, we like to do new things and new challenges will help us mature and grow as a developer. Smart phones and tablets are an interesting challenge for us."
