Elden Ring, Dark Souls Dev FromSoftware Beefing Up for Multiple New PS5 Games 1

FromSoftware may have a long history dating all the way back to 1994’s King’s Field on the PS1, but it’s become an industry darling in more recent years. The veteran developer has unexpectedly discovered mainstream success with titles like Dark Souls and Elden Ring, and even the sixth instalment in its formerly niche mecha series Armored Core attracted significant success earlier this year.

Now, according to IGN Japan, the Tokyo-based team is hosting a “massive recruitment” drive as it seeks to bolster its studio for “multiple new projects”. Among the listings, it’s looking for engineers, artists, programmers, sound designers, PR representatives, and much more; essentially every role associated with game development you can think of is mentioned here.

Those interested are invited to register ahead of 30th November, with a selection of online briefings scheduled for December. With multiple webinars planned, expected to outline the exact specifics of each role, it’s possible we may learn more about what the developer has got planned. In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if it announced a couple of new in-production projects to help with recruitment.

We know that the developer is working on an expansion for Elden Ring, but it’s likely this is nearing completion now. Beyond that, though, with the aforementioned Armored Core 6: Fires of Rubicon already out, it looks like it’ll be turning its attention to its next big things. Any bets for what it’ll be working on? At this point, you’d be foolish to bet against Elden Ring 2, right?
