From Software’s next game is almost finished, according to new reports. The Elden Ring developer has confirmed that From Software is indeed hiring for many new games, as stated on Twitter. The tweet posted linked to a recruitment site that has listings for many different positions. The site also features artwork from multiple different From Software games, such as Elden Ring, Sekiro, and even Armored Core, which has been dormant for a while.

The tweet, when put through a machine translator, reads:
We have started recruiting staff in a wide range of occupations for multiple new projects. We look forward to working with you to create games together at FromSoftware. If you don’t mind, please check the special site.
From Software‘s Hidetaka Miyazaki stated in an interview that the company is working on an unannounced project, and this unannounced project is reportedly in the final stages of development. Miyazaki also stated that he still intends to direct video games as well. One of the ideas that were described by Miyazaki was that of a fantasy concept that isn’t similar at all to the fantasy featured in Soul’s games.
The unannounced project sounds interesting and all, but one of the games that From Software seems to be developing is a new entry in the studio’s Armored Core franchise. It’s been rumored that the sci-fi series is getting a revival for a while now, and a few months back, some screenshots from the next entry were even leaked. The leaks looked promising, but as of now, there’s no word if there’s even any truth to them or not.
It’s also been recently mentioned that Elden Ring will continue to receive support for the foreseeable future, although Miyazaki didn’t reveal to fans what to expect. Although it’s not been revealed to fans what the future of Elden Ring brings, if past Souls games are anything to go by, it’s going to be a DLC of some form.
