It's easy to forget that Dark Souls and Elden Ring developer FromSoftware was behind the Armored Core series — a series that hasn't appeared on PlayStation consoles since 2013. Rumours regarding a new Armored Core game have been doing the rounds for quite some time — the developer even confirmed that some kind of Armored Core project was in the works years ago — but this latest 'leak' seems pretty legit.
According to ResetEra user Red Liquorice, Armored Core 6 — or whatever it happens to be called — is real, and it's been outed through a consumer survey of all things. Said survey includes story details, screenshots, and even gameplay footage. There's also mention of Hidetaka Miyazaki, the creator of Dark Souls and FromSoftware's other dark fantasy titles. He's apparently behind the sci-fi world of Armored Core 6.
Overall, it very much sounds like an Armored Core game — fast and frantic third-person mecha action combined with heavy customisation options. Given the supposed amount of detail in this survey, it's fair to assume that the project is quite far along. Hopefully we get an official announcement in the relatively near future — although we imagine that FromSoftware will want to get Elden Ring out of the way first.
Would you be up for a new Armored Core? Keep an eye on your ammo count in the comments section below.

It does make a lot of sense. Never played one of the games myself, though!
I didn't know Elden Ring was getting mecha DLC!!!! (it's a joke because I know there will always be one person who takes this seriously, sigh...)
We will not see it for a few more months as FS will probably want to focus all attention on Elden Ring
Time to practice holding the Dualsense controller backwards! 😆
Always loved this series. If this and Twisted Metal by Lucid Games are both real then I can finally have some PS multiplayer that I enjoy back on the system. Every time I see someone ask "Where is the FPS exclusive?", I think to how I would instead prefer these kinds of experiences. I would also add that Miyazaki had already discussed that Armored Core 6 was a thing before Elden Ring was announced but I wrote it off thinking they must have cancelled it. Looking at the screenshots, this would definitely be another Armored Core and maybe mixed with some Soulslike design elements?!
Was wondering if there's a way to let pushsquare's writers about these news? Because I read an article about it yesterday and posted it in the general ps4 thread. Or is it needless?
@lolwhatno Best way to get in touch with potential news is emailing [email protected]
We actually saw this story develop over the weekend, but wanted to see if it got posted elsewhere (like Gematsu). Always best to wait and see if anyone can corroborate these kinds of rumours — the ones that originate on forums or social media, etc.
@ShogunRok @lolwhatno that, or the 'contact' link at the bottom of every page there is a 'News Tips' option — but the email goes to the same place.
From could release a gardening sim and I'd still pause everything else in my life to focus on it.
I think you’ll find Dark Souls Daddy is Solaire of Ass-tora.
But will they ever release a sequel to 3D Dot Game Heroes?
@ShogunRok @antdickens Alright thanks for explaining.
Totally unrelated but we appreciate you guys coming down here in the comments field with us. Most would stay in the pushsquare towers and laugh at us poor peasants.
Honestly the first armored core was half decent, they should remake that one, and polish it excessively. Then come out with sequels. All the other current sequels made were terrible.
Finally, a new Armored Core, or any FromSoft game that isn't just the Souls formula.
Finally!! Been waiting so long for any confirmation that this game actually exists. Just imagining playing a new Armored Core with next-gen graphics, led by Miyazaki and all of the knowledge and talent he brings to the table. I am without words. Just hook it to my veins!!! Armored Core!!!
Never played any of them, only got into From Soft with Demons Souls on the PS3… I’ll play anything that Miyazaki is involved with though, so if the rumour is true I’ll be looking forward to it.
That’s awesome to hear very excited for more details. However, where’s the Bloodborne news!
@Filth_Element 2 things:
1-What bloodborne news?! Did they announce bloodborne kart yet?
2-That's in my top 10 most clever usernames ever.
I've never played any of the Armored Core games before, but cool to know!
@lolwhatno lol cheers. Unfortunately I know no insider news just wishing and praying for more Bloodborne. However, I was listening to a podcast recently which one of the hosts said something that just makes me think there might be some news coming… pure speculation on my part and like I said wishful thinking.
@Filth_Element Ah, that sucks. I just wanna say don't get your hopes too high. If you're new to the community of people waiting for bloodborne related news, let me tell you, rumours come and go every week. It sucks, but I'm pretty sure they are not working on a new bloodborne sniff
@lolwhatno yeah I know rumours are rife but that’s what keep hope alive! 😅
