From Software, the acclaimed developer behind games like Elden Ring, Bloodborne and Dark Souls, has started recruiting for multiple new projects. The company recently released the action game Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon and has a massive expansion for Elden Ring, titled Shadow of the Erdtree, on the way. Beyond that, it looks like it’s gearing up for several new projects – it’s anyone’s guess what they could be.
As reported by IGN Japan, From Software is currently recruiting “large-scale development staff” for multiple new projects. Apart from Shadow of the Erdtree, the developer’s schedule for 2024 and beyond largely remains a mystery. There have been whispers of everything from a potential Elden Ring sequel to more new IPs, though it’s possibly the latter as From Software has a tendency to focus on the creation of new properties instead of follow-ups.

Back in March, we reported that From Software’s next game had already entered development. A separate team is apparently focusing on the Elden Ring expansion at the moment while a few key developers have already moved onto the next big release. Recruiting new staff would also benefit the company’s plans to self-publish its own games in the near future.
Fans have speculated about what From Software has in store for future releases. While sequels aren’t out of the question entirely – and it would make sense for an Elden Ring sequel since the game is currently the company’s (and publisher Bandai Namco’s) best-selling title of all time – most agree that new IPs are where the developer’s strengths lie. Others are just hopeful that we’ll get a sequel to Bloodborne, though we may have to keep that one in our dreams.
