In a new interview with Japanese site 4Gamer, Miyazaki was asked about a previous comment he had made in a 2018 interview about having multiple games in development.
Asked if one of those games was still on the way, Miyazki confirmed: “Yes, it is. We are in the final stages of development.”
UPDATE: From Software is working on “multiple new projects” from different directors, it’s said.
When asked to elaborate, he said: “It’s not the right time to talk about them in detail, but I think they are both games that are typical of us. It will take a little more time, but I think we will be able to tell you about them one by one as they take shape.”
In the four years that have followed since that interview, one of these games was revealed to be Elden Ring, but the other has still never been announced. Given his claims at the time, this new unannounced game has seemingly been in development since at least 2016.
It’s believed that the game in question may be Armored Core 6, which was reportedly mentioned in a consumer survey earlier this year.
Resetera user Red Liquorice claimed in January that they had received a survey from the Elden Ring and Dark Souls studio, which seemingly revealed the first details on the next unannounced mech combat game.
The alleged unnamed instalment, which would be the first full Armored Core title since 2012, was said to feature a “sci-fi world created by Hidetaka Miyazaki”, “three-dimensional, dynamic action” and a “high degree of freedom in customisation”.
