Armored Core 6 PS5 PS4

The future seems bright once more for the Armored Core franchise, as FromSoftware president Hidetaka Miyazaki has shared in a new interview that there's a "strong will" inside the developer to create more. Recently talking to IGN Japan (translated by FandomWire), he said the Armored Core series remains "very important to FromSoftware", and there's a "strong will to continue it in the future. I believe Armored Core 6 was a success."

Following its release last year, it was revealed Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon sold 2.8 million copies as of October 2023. There's a good chance the sixth mainline entry has now surpassed the three million sales milestone, but Miyazaki says the titles still have room for improvement. Claiming "not everything was perfect" in Armored Core 6, he said: "There is still room for improvement, so I have no intention of stopping there."

FromSoftware will have its focus set firmly on Elden Ring DLC Shadow of the Erdtree for now, set to release for PS5, PS4 on 21st June 2024. However, after that's out the door, it sounds like more Armored Core might well be on the way.

In our Armored Core 6 PS5 review, we awarded a 7/10 rating and praised its combat, deep mech customisation, and memorable boss fights. "Armored Core VI: Fires of Rubicon admirably weds satisfying combat with extensive mech customisation, with short missions letting you quickly experiment with new ideas and builds. However, once you've settled on an optimal loadout, it's those same quick-fire levels that begin to blunt the fun."
