Hidetaka Miyazaki Talks Future FromSoftware Souls Games

FromSoftware Soulslike Games Unlikely to Be Directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki Going Forward

FromSoftware‘s Hidetaka Miyazaki has said that he wants other developers to direct the studio’s future Souls type games. In a recent interview with IGN Nordic, Miyazaki said that there’s a “high possibility” he will delegate his traditional role of director to someone else going forward.

Why Miyazaki wants fresh faces to direct future FromSoftware Souls games

Miyazaki told IGN Nordic that not only does he want to delegate responsibilities of a director in the future, he also wants to step away from a supervisory role. He’s of the view that this is the best way forward for fresh talent to “flourish” when it comes to “Souls-ish” games.

“I think it’s very likely that we’ll see new directors going forward,” Miyazaki said. “And I think if we do that, I’d like to step away from that supervisory role and give them full direction and full control over those projects. I think really this is the best way and the easiest way for them to flourish within that environment and with those new projects.”

Elsewhere, Miyazaki said that FromSoftware is able to release massive, successful AAA games like Elden Ring relatively quickly because the studio is “blessed with great staff” that’s “efficient at creating games.”
